Technological innovations have revolutionised communication platforms, replacing traditional billboards and other static legacy platforms with digital signage boards. So it’s no wonder that the digital signage market is spiking! Digital signage makes communication appealing and informative in commercial establishments and educational institutions.

Uses of Digital Signage

When it comes to a busy campus where students flood the halls throughout the day and night, there must be a source of communication available 24/7. Digital signage can take your message and broadcast it in a way that is easily read and open throughout the campus. With this technology, the sky is the limit to your communication! Post videos, weather, statements, important information, and more. 

Traditional static signage has been an excellent tool for many years, but digital signage takes it up a notch.  From its effectiveness to affordability; digital signage is changing the communication game on campuses nationwide.

Benefits of Digital Signage for your Campus

Digital signage is rapidly evolving. Billboards are becoming digitizsd throughout the country and video is being used in retail stores to help push coupons and offers. With this tech proliferating, we will see bigger and better education improvements,such as using touchscreens in the classroom. Let’s discuss some of the benefits in detail:

Expanded Scope of Communication

You can use digital signage to create easy, connected, consistent campus communication. Some college campuses and other institutions have tried many communication methods, such as text messaging and mobile applications. However, students must opt in for these services before receiving any notification. Digital signage has no access restrictions and is prominently available for your students, visitors, and staff.

Regardless of size, digital signage creates a consistent messaging center throughout the campus. This means that your  information will be seen and read by the students who walk past throughout the day. Whether displaying examination details or showing your achievements and contributions, digital signage is sure to catch attention and drive the message across to a wider audience.

With digital signage, you can quickly and efficiently add, edit, and remove messaging; keeping consistency at the highest level. 

Eliminate Communication Gaps

Traditional means of communication, such as flyers and newsletters, require a lot of resources. You can be confident that communication gaps will find their way in through these traditional means. Students can miss essential notifications, get wrong information, and create a miscommunication error.

But with digital signage, you can eliminate these communication gaps quickly. There won’t be a reason to worry about miscommunications or errors. Instead, you will have complete control of your message, with the desired reach and accuracy.

Deploying a Wayfinding Solution

For large campuses, even returning students may need help navigating their way. Tools are available to deploy a wayfinding solution or an interactive map to help students navigate the campus. This can create a higher morale and responsibility and save time for your faculty.

Deploying an Emergency Alert System

Disasters and other occurrences happen. Fortunately, we have technology that can help ease the burden of quick communication. When a disaster or an emergency occurs, your digital signage and technology can deploy an emergency alert system. providing insights on what to do next, with digital signage being easily accessible.

Create Collaboration among Students and Teachers

You can increase the collaboration between students, teachers, and other faculty members. Although great for communication, video walls are also well-suited for educational purposes. Teachers can use video walls to bring new life to lessons while allowing students to communicate more effectively and creatively.

Digital signage is a great way to fuel communication and collaboration on your campus. With technology growing rapidly, communication gaps may also grow. You can leverage your digital signage to close these communication gaps and bring your campus closer together.
