TAMPA, Fla. (Sept. 20, 2011) – The USF Magazine, the University of South Florida’s signature quarterly publication, is now available on digital devices and features new interactive offerings, such as video, photo slideshows and links to other engaging content about student success, research and other major university initiatives.
The new product, utilizing a responsive web design and built by USF News media specialist Charlotte Koh, will “respond” to the size of the display available on the device being used to view the magazine. So, while the content remains the same, the way the magazine is displayed will change slightly when viewed on a desktop, tablet or smartphone. It will work on most devices, including iPad and iPhone and Android phones and tablets.
“As the university’s signature publication, we want to make this content available to as many customers as possible,” said Peter E. Howard, executive editor of the USF Magazine and director of news and digital media for University Communications. “Now our content can reach a much wider audience, and they can enjoy and engage in our multimedia story-telling whether they are in the office, at the beach or waiting in an airport.”
The digital magazine is available at www.magazine.usf.edu .
About 40,000 copies of the USF Magazine are printed each issue. The frequency of the magazine was increased this year from three times yearly to quarterly. Printed copies are distributed primarily to alumni, faculty, staff and donors.
The magazine strives to inform customers about life at USF by featuring news about students, faculty and staff and documenting major research discoveries, new university programs and placing a spotlight on all things cool and interesting.
