(Augusta, GA) - Paine College has launched a mobile version of its website for fast and convenient access on handheld devices. The site can be found at m.paine.edu. Paine College is the first HBCU in the state of Georgia to launch a full-featured mobile site for handheld devices. The new Paine College Mobile site is also accessible to devices like the iPad, Kindle Fire and other notebook devices.
According to a survey conducted Noel-Levitz and the National Research Center for College & University Admissions, 52 percent of prospective college students said they had viewed a school’s website on a mobile device in 2011—more than double the percentage from 2010. And 48 percent of those students said the mobile site experience bettered their view of the campus.
“The movement that Paine College is making towards the future can only be described as progressive,” said Dr. George C. Bradley, Paine College President. “Students and constituents have an expectation of this type of innovation. We’re stepping up to provide it here at Paine.”
Currently, the new mobile site exhibits information about admissions, a calendar, faculty/staff directory, campus news, athletics and more. You can also stay connected with links to Paine College's social networking sites.
“Paine College’s mobile presence is extremely important as we evolve and continue to market our institution to technologically savvy generations. According to statistics a mobile site is imperative to keep Colleges and Universities competitive,” said Natasha Carter, Director of Communications and Marketing.
Site developers Webflex Consulting, LLC (webflexconsulting.com) expect to see additional features added to the site over time.
