Student Communication

Campus life can be fast-paced, distracting, and filled with plenty of visual noise. That's why it's critical for educators to be able to communicate to students clearly and concisely.

Student Communication Digital Signage

At Rise Vision, we believe that digital signage is a key component of effective student communication. When done well, digital signage is one of the best ways to get emergency notifications, important dates, and upcoming events in front of a campus audience.


How does Rise Vision improve student communication?

Since 1992, Rise Vision has been a leading digital signage software solution for schools and businesses. Since then, we’ve built a software platform that not only runs on any major digital signage operating system - but can also easily adapt to any technology changes a school or institution may decide to make.

During this time we’ve discovered the hidden cost of digital signage is content creation. Before using Rise Vision our customers would spend up to 16 hours a week creating, editing and updating their digital signage campaigns. We’ve tackled this problem by creating a platform that eliminates a lot of the time-consuming content creation and management issues you’ll find with traditional digital signage. Let’s go over how Rise Vision solves these problems below:

Work From The Cloud

Work from the cloud!

Now, more than ever, campus staff must have the ability to update or make changes to student information off-site. Rise Vision is 100% cloud-based, which means you can access and make changes to any on-campus display from any location in the world.

Additionally, by being cloud-based there’s no need to have to service individual computers or media players when you want to update your digital signage. This saves hours of work and reduces workplace injury. Often, digital signage hardware is located above ceiling tiles and requires technicians to work on ladders. Keeping your IT staff and campus technicians off of ladders prevents injuries to themselves as well as students.

Save Time With Pre-Made Templates

Save Time With Pre-Made Templates

We’ve found that our customers will spend up to 16 hours a week creating digital signage content. We’ve helped to reduce that burden by creating a templates gallery that cuts content creation workload down. Creating digital signage content now only takes minutes instead of hours when you use Rise Vision.

There’s also no need to create digital signs in Photoshop or other graphic design tools. Just search for a template, edit the text, adjust colors, insert your logo and you’re on your way! You can even connect your school social media accounts, stream video and get feed data (like weather information) fed right into your templates.

Content Management Student Communication

Content Management

A useful digital signage system needs to be able to store logos, animations, and finalized signs. An intelligent digital signage system eliminates the need to have to routinely re-upload files and rebuild workflows. Rise Vision was designed to reduce all repetitive content management and campaign programming tasks.

Since we’ve released our digital signage solution in 1992, we deeply understand the common workflows and repetitive tasks our customers go through. We’ve used this knowledge to streamline the digital signage management process so that you only need one tool to manage, create and operate your digital signage campaigns.

Smart Scheduling Student Communication

Smart Scheduling

Another time-saving feature that we’ve incorporated into our software is the ability to schedule your digital signage. There’s no need to manually change messages or upload new information on certain days and/or times.

Rise Vision was designed so you can schedule all your signage campaigns in one sitting. You can even schedule campaigns to operate on different days and times on multiple displays - or even different displays throughout your campus!

3 Tips For Better Student Communication Using Digital Signage

1. Think Before You Install

It’s easy to think that any wall is a great place to mount digital signage. But when hallways are busy and full of students, those walls become difficult to see. Think about how you can mount your digital signage up high and in sections of your school that will get the most visual impressions.

2. Bigger Text is Always Better

Bigger text is easier to read from far away or for those with vision deficiencies. This also means you’ll want to keep your messaging concise so you don’t sacrifice text size for word count. A side benefit of being limited by space or word count is that your messaging becomes easier to read and comprehend.

3. Keep Your Design High Contrast

Some people have a hard time understanding written information because the signage was designed using a low contrast ratio color scheme. Certain members of the population are color blind or have difficulty reading information that is presented using low contrast ratios. We should assume that everyone falls into this category when we design signage. Using this as a “design rule of thumb” will guarantee maximum communication effectiveness.
