Southeast’s mobile site can be accessed from any smart phone with a Web browser, including the iPhone or iPod touch.

Southeast Missouri State University is pleased to announce the launch of a brand new Web site for mobile users.

The new site, located at http://m.semo.edu or http://www.semo.edu/mobile, is designed  to allow quick access to a wealth of campus information straight from your iPhone, iPod Touch or smart phone.

Using Southeast’s mobile Web site users can access emergency phone numbers or e-mail addresses for campus faculty and staff. They can also access the latest campus news, athletics scores and the University’s master calendar.

Also available is a campus map that displays the location of campus buildings and services. If using an iPhone or iPod Touch with access to Google Maps, the user can get directions to any building on campus through the map interface.

To access the site, open up your mobile device’s Web browser (Safari on the iPhone, for example) and go to either http://m.semo.edu or http://www.semo.edu/mobile. The site will open if you are connected to a wireless network such as a WiFi network or a cellular data network (3G or Edge). There is nothing to download or purchase. You access all the functions of the mobile Web site through your device’s Web browser.

The mobile Web site was built using a free open-source framework developed by MIT. Designated the Mobile Web Open Source Project, the framework was documented for use by other campuses by Dave Olsen of West Virginia University.

The Framework was then adapted for use at Southeast by Web Design and Support in Marketing and University Relations.
