Has anyone tried using the jquery mobile framework with Cascade to create a mobile site? I'm new to jquery mobile, but it seems like you are essentially building your website in one page that uses divs to present "web pages."

I'm trying to figure out what would be the best way to use this in conjunction with content we already have on our website in Cascade.

If I made a new template(s) in Cascade and used jquery mobile then I could just set the content area/div as Default and it would pull in the content from Cascade just like a "regular" template right? Then there might be some pages - like the home page, that would use a separate template built with jquery mobile.

I was just wondering if anyone had successfully implemented something similar and/or if I was on the right track.

    Hi lauren,

    There were a few mobile-related case-studies and webinars that may be able to give you a starting point.

    There is a case-study by the University of Scranton as well as a webinar video. They chose to use jQuery Mobile so I think these might be very relevant for you.

    Also, Hannon Hill hosted a best practices webinar and posted a blog post that discusses designing a page for mobile output.

    You are welcome, Lauren. Glad to see you found them to be useful.

    I am going to leave this discussion open for now, hopefully some of the others from the community will chime in on their mobile experiences.

    Also, feel free to check out this resources page, which lists different Higher Ed resources. You may be able to get some information here as well.
