Every day, more and more schools, colleges and universities are turning to digital signage to inform, educate and alert their campuses. Primarily deployed in common areas such as cafeterias, student lounges, libraries and facility lobbies, these communication networks provide a critical link between campus administrators and the student body and facility. Digital signage can help you visualize your message and break through the clutter of boring paper signage with a dynamic way to show event details, building directories, campus mapping, or simple announcements and alerts.
Digital signage is helping educational institutions from K-12 to the university level achieve a variety of communications objectives more easily than ever before. What can digital signage do for your school?
The success of a digital signage network depends entirely on the content. By design, digital signage content must follow the institution’s overall business and marketing strategy. It must complement the other student-oriented activities of the campus. Content must be current, relevant, meaningful, interesting, motivating and evoke emotion in order to consistently draw the attention of the campus populace. Bigidea digital displays are easy to configure, boasts HD picture quality, and allows for the management of multiple display boards from one central location. That means your content can always change when it needs to, and unlike information on paper signs, it will never fray or be torn down.
College and university campuses are not immune to the threats and events that challenge every local community – potential weather disasters and threats to personal safety are unhappily common occurrences that require appropriate action on campus. In times of crisis, these signage displays can be transformed into an emergency communication system, allowing staff to post visual alert messages quickly.
Digital signage allows for the opportunity to celebrate the personality and achievements of everyone in your school community, without the information lingering too long and becoming old or worn-out.
Bigidea digital signage systems are not only affordably priced but also provide an additional revenue opportunity by offering prime advertising space for relevant vendors.
With several applications and excellent quality assurance, Bigidea digital signage is a low-cost, high-reward investment that can help your institution do more to engage its students, open up new funding opportunities, and raise its profile – both inside and outside of your school community.
Every school has distinguished alumni, strategic business partners, and generous donors that help expand and improve the facility. Etched glass and wood plaques are nice, but become obsolete too soon. Interactive signage systems provide a higher-level experience that tells a story. Donors can use pictures and video to share information about their donation, why they gave and how the money was used to better the institution.
