The Community College of Rhode Island unveiled phase one of its mobile web initiative on Jan. 21, 2013. The first phase includes a mobile-friendly version of the most frequently visited pages of the public-facing www.ccri.edu site.
A redirect option message to "Visit our mobile website?" is automatically offered to website visitors using mobile devices. The mobile site offers a more responsive design for small screens such as those on a smart phone or tablet. The mobile version of the site also can be viewed on a desktop or laptop at www.ccri.edu/mobile.
Please Note: At this time, CCRI's mobile site only includes the most highly visited pages from the main public-facing website: www.ccri.edu. It does not include a mobile-friendly version of the MyCCRI portal or the Banner Information System, which are separate systems within the overall CCRI web presence. Plans are underway to build mobile versions of these areas but, until then, only the desktop/laptop versions of the portal and information system are available.
Also, in order to view MyCCRI, either on a computer or mobile device, you must follow the browser requirements of that system. Browsers that work with MyCCRI can be viewed here.
At its launch, the mobile site had 64 pages designed specifically for mobile devices; some of these include:
- About – A message from the president, contact information and related links.
- Admissions – What's New, Information Sessions, Learn how to Apply, Campus Tours and Adult learners.
- Calendar – View the academic calendar lists important enrollment dates, holidays and exam schedules.
- Campuses – Search for customized directions to each CCRI campus using Google Maps.
- Courses – Search for available courses by subject, day, time and campus location.
- Departments – Browse a listing of college departments, programs and services.
- Emergencies – Report an emergency, learn about Rave Emergency Alerts and access emergency and weather-related information.
- IT help – Check the status of CCRI’s IT systems, including MyCCRI and Banner, and access additional information technology resources.
- Library – Find contact information, search the Higher Education Library Information Network (HELIN) Consortium database for books, journals, government documents, DVDs, e-books and more.
- MyCCRI Login - a mobile-friendly login screen to the desktop version of the portal plus helpful links including a mobile page which allows students to view their current class schedule.

Visitors who wish to view the desktop version of the website while using their mobile device may do so by clicking "Full Site" at the bottom of the page.
In the future, additional pages will be added and adjusted based on feedback from the community and site traffic.
