Audrey and I discussed responsive web design within the Desire2Learn Learning Environment at this year’s Fusion conference in San Diego, California. For those that aren’t familiar with the concept, responsive web design is a technique for creating webpages that function across a variety of different screen sizes. Using media queries, a feature of CSS 3, responsive pages adjust their layout based on the width of the browser. In our session, we used the Skeleton CSS framework, available at, to build a multi-column webpage, complete with images and embedded video.
