Digital Signage helps you get the word out about your group, event, award, or anything FACS related.

OTIS manages the system while staff members across the college help post the information. Digital Signage is a closed-circuit, in-college communication system which uses flat-screen monitors to broadcast important information to FACS students, faculty, and staff. Displays are located at various points around the college.

FACS uses digital signage to increase the effectiveness of communications to students, faculty and staff.

Helpful Hints about Composing Messages

Use of photos, graphics, and flash animations is encouraged. Those who post to the Digital Signs are welcome and strongly encouraged to use pre-made templates for messages.
When using photos, be sure the photos are high-resolution 4" x 3" (1024 x 768) bitmaps. Be brief and to the point as your message has a better chance of being read if the content of the message is quickly and efficiently displayed.

If in doubt, call the Office of Technology and Instructional Services at (706) 542-4864 before posting.
