Here’s Your Sign: Developing a Digital Sign Content Sharing Strategy Across a Multi-Campus System

Monday, Oct 14 10:15 - 11:30

Presented by Jeff Sechler

When it comes to digital signs and displaying content, we are awesome at creating and displaying our own information, but not so great about sharing that content with others. Often, the reason for not sharing isn’t because we don’t want to, it’s because we don’t know how to.

Coordinating content sharing in a decentralized higher education environment can seem like a daunting task. Learn how we developed a process to bring our network of more than 50 units managing over 500 signs at multiple campus locations together to allow for easy and efficient content sharing while still giving each unit the freedom to display what they want, when they want.
