New System for Digital Screens Launched Over Summer

submitted by jendra@augsburg.edu

A new system to manage the digital signs on campus, which is based on WordPress, was launched this summer. It provides several improvements:

• Greater reliability: the previous system was no longer supported
• Quicker turnaround: the new system will use standard templates for all event announcements and general announcements, resulting in quicker posting
• Emergency alerts: over the coming months, we will be working with Public Safety in hopes of integrating the new system with their notification system so that emergency alerts can be displayed on all screens automatically.

Requests for digital screens can still be submitted at inside.augsburg.edu/marketing. To allow ample opportunity for the campus community to encounter the information, please submit digital screens announcing events no less than two weeks before the event takes place. Digital screens are the preferred method for announcing and promoting on-campus events in our buildings. For this reason, generally speaking, Marketing and Communication will not produce posters, flyers, or handouts to promote on-campus events to internal audiences.
