The UCLA Mobile Web Framework

The UCLA Mobile Web Framework, namesake of the MWF initiative, makes it easy for developers to create a mobile web apps that compatible with every major HTML-compliant mobile web browser. Through graceful degredation and progressive enhancement, no device gets forgotten, but rather the framework ensures that each visitor gets an experience best tailored to their device.

Built upon the principle of federation, the Mobile Web Framework can be deployed in both a central or a distributed model, and it is compatible with every web language system and environment as all one needs to go is include a couple browser-side files (CSS and Javascript), and the framework handles the rest.

Device Telemetry Stack

At the heart of the MWF, the Device Telemetry Stack (DTS) is a cutting-edge stack that dynamically determines device capabilities, dimensions, browser, operating system, and more, and then makes that data available and consistent both client-side in Javascript and server-side in PHP. The DTS also provides a simple interface to access this same telemetry in any other server-side language, and it's roadmap includes adding server-side APIs for other languages including Java, .NET, Python and Ruby.

Conference/Events Tool

First demoed as the official app for the First Annual MWF Conference, the UCLA Education and Collaboration Technology Architecture Group is now working on expanding this tool so that it can be used in other settings. Built for flexibility and scalability, this tool shall support single events, large conferences, and even a software-as-a-service model where one service provider may host any number of events. In all cases, this application takes advantage of the MWF to provide interfaces conducive to both the mobile and desktop experience.

UCLA Welcome Week Module

At the start of the school year, many higher ed institutions sponsor a set of events to welcome students back to campus. Termed "Welcome Week" at UCLA, the UCLA Education and Collaboration Technology Architecture Group and UCLA Campus Student Programming recognized the power of the mobile medium in this setting. Built atop the MWF, it simultaneously places pertinent information in the palm of students' hands in real-time and acquaints them with the broader campus mobile offering. Given its applicability beyond UCLA, there is now an effort underway to make this application more generic and available for other higher ed institutions.
