Vanderbilt Web site on the iPhone

iphone2.pngI’ve been itchin’ to tell you guys about this and now I can: we’ve optimized the VU homepage for the iPhone. Ta dah! Lion’s share of credit goes to the Vanderbilt News Service’s mad programmer Mike Petruna.

To see the site on your iPhone, just go to http://www.vanderbilt.edu. Check it out elsewhere here: http://www.vanderbilt.edu/iphone.

What makes it cool, IMHO – the snazzy yet simple design, it’s populated with RSS feeds from all of our main news sites, it works nicely with our iTunes U and YouTube spaces, the special content for prospective students, and the nice little Vandy V you get on your iPhone homescreen when you click on the + sign.

Oh, and the fact that as far as I can tell we’re one of the only universities so far to have done this. Many more exciting things coming for higher ed and the iPhone, of course.

We’re just getting started. Stay tuned.
