Digital signage is helping deliver campus announcements at Toronto's Crescent School for Boys, thanks to Dot2Dot Communications and Scala.
A centralized digital signage network located in five key areas throughout the school uses Scala software to keep students updated, informed and engaged. Offering information on everything from bus schedules to news, announcements and house standings, the network also provides the peace of mind that emergency alerts can be broadcast instantly should the need arise, the announcement said.
The school is investing in training the students who themselves manage and run the network on a daily basis. Dot2Dot Communications hosted an onsite two-day work shop where hands-on training on Scala Content Manager and Designer was provided for key students and staff.
"This is exactly what we're looking to achieve as we work with schools to implement a digital communications solution," said Andy McRae, general manager of Dot2Dot Communications. "As part of Dot2Dot's Education Bundle we emphasize the importance of getting students involved and taking ownership in the network, Crescent is doing just that."
