As the number of students, and learnings of all ages, access their work product and credentials via mobile phones and tablets, smart Ed-Tech companies, will realize they must quickly find a way to meet their users needs for true portability.

Responsive Web Design or RWD is the forward-thinking alternative to building out separate applications or relying on device-specific templates in your web application.
