Digital Signs

MTSU uses the FWi Content Manager to store, deploy and schedule content to signs on the digital signage network. Enterprise digital sign management is in place to manage timely accurate information for logistics and wayfinding via digital signs, provide a venue for promotion of university-related communications, and promote a sense of place (comfort/belonging/connection) to the University.  It will be overseen by the Digital Signage Planning Committee, chaired by the AVP for Academic and Instructional Technologies, providing input and recommendations to the University Vice Presidents.
