Leading University Launches Website on iAPPS

BURLINGTON, Mass., Dec. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bridgeline Digital, Inc. (Nasdaq:BLIN), The Digital Engagement Company™, today announced that a leading research and academic university launched a new, mobile-friendly website on iAPPS Content Manager. The primary function of the website is to serve as a virtual classroom where professors could quickly and easily update pages, display projects, and post additional curriculum about upcoming classes.

The university selected Bridgeline because of the unique level of engagement, scalability and innovation iAPPS offers. Permission-based publishing created through workflow controls empowers professors and students to engage with one another directly on customized pages specific to individual classes. Moreover, with the new site, which boasts a fresh, engaging design, both current students and alumni have access to create their own personal pages.

The mobile-friendly capabilities embedded within iAPPS extend the learning experience to any location, on any device. The website was developed with Responsive Design, a design methodology which optimizes visitor experience by triggering web content to automatically adjust to the size of the screen accessing the website. Additionally, On-the-Go Authoring functionality enables users to easily edit and publish content on their pages with their smart phone or tablet.

"iAPPS is known for its ability to provide customers with superior technology that is easy to use," said Thomas Massie, Bridgeline's Chief Executive Officer. "But perhaps more importantly, our developers have also found ways to contextualize both front and back-end features to enhance the user experience and meet organizational goals whether it be in business or, in this case, academics."
