Using digital signage in an education setting
Education was an early adopter of digital signage
Of the many ways we come across digital signage in our lives, it’s the education sector that probably uses it in the most dynamic way. Starting with the youngest, image led content through to those in higher education where integrated, automated capabilities from the very best sophisticated solutions are required.
The education sector was an early adopter of digital signage, helped along the way by various local and national schemes to enhance communication within every establishments reach. And it has been very successful, I think it’s rare to find a school that doesn’t now have a screen or two being used for digital signage.
Like all things digital, the landscape has altered considerably, especially recently and you want to feel your screen systems software has kept pace too! If your existing content management system feels clunky and slow, then you might want to consider LiveSpace digital signage. LiveSpace has been written using concepts like the minimal-step navigation we are familiar with on our mobile phones. It utilises an easy workflow design which quickly steps you through to an obvious end point.
The clean, uncomplicated dashboard design make the system user friendly and rewarding to use. So easy, that minimal training is needed to bring new users’ up to speed in the day-to-day running of the system. The advantage here is that it can be a joy to use rather than a pain point to be sidestepped. To do this we adopted similar techniques used to create the familiar digital applications we all use on our desktops and mobile phones. If, from the very outset it feels like an application you’ve used before, then it’s easier to adopt because the learning process is already shorter.
This is what our clients say. “We’ve found the system easy to use and very flexible. It takes no time at all to make content available for display. The speed with which we are able to generate pages of information and share them throughout the campus is impressive.”
