Digital signage changes the way in getting students and teachers informed at colleges and universities


You might remember the pinboards with plenty of information in the hall of the campus. Loaded with letters, flyers, posters, and memos. Students which are trying to find the most relevant information, miss class because of an unclear change in their timetable, and so on. Luckily, more colleges and universities choose to use a digital signage system within their institution. It enhances the information flow, reduces costs, and gets more attention. In this article, we mention how signage can be used in colleges and universities. We will mention the benefits of this flexible and up-to-date form of communication.


Check what's current and relevant in a blink of an eye

With signage, it's possible to improve the information flow toward the students and the teachers. Actual information can be shared with the whole institution within a few clicks. Consider a display with information as a complement to the information that gets shared internally. It works with cross-media and amplifies each other. For example, a message which announces an event that people can sign-up for via the app or the internet.


Actual timetable changes and important news will get the deserved attention rapidly. In case of an emergency, the network of displays can play an important role, because you only have to do one action to publish a lifesaving alert. Besides these options, you can also use the displays for commercial use. You can show digital menu's in the canteen or use the displays for promotion throughout the buildings.


A logistic role

Besides providing the students, teachers, and visitors with information, the institution can also gain advantages by using displays with logistic goals. For example, an interactive floorplan at the entrance of the building. Students won't have excuses any longer for missing class!


Attention for entertainment

It doesn't always have to be about important messages or logistics, you can also use the displays for entertainment by linking with social media, newsfeeds, and sports updates. Does the university have its own Facebook page where information gets shared? Know that it's possible to show information from social media on the displays. Want to cast an important sports game or news broadcast? It's all possible with smart signage software so that the game or broadcast won't be missed.


MagicINFO suitable for complex digital signage networks

MagicINFO allows you to create a network of displays where each display has its own purpose. By using the organizations, groups, and where necessary subgroups a complex network can be set up where you are able to supply the displays individually or as a group with content. You are even able to create certain users with certain rights. By doing this, you can provide certain content managers certain access. For example, they are only allowed to create or adjust the content and nothing else. By using a well-organized layout and smart usage of the users and user rights the network really comes alive. MagicINFO offers technical management a solution thanks to dashboards, usage rapports, and remote management. Remote management allows you to control your Samsung hardware from a distance.


The solution for digital signage in the educational environment

If you are a private or public school, university, or professional institute, engagement with the audience is important. Think of your students, teachers, staff, and visitors to provide them with relevant and exciting content. This is an important element for improving engagement with the students and creating a safer campus environment. The smart signage displays from Samsung are very effortless and controllable with the MagicINFO software.
