Digital Signage

Description: 

The School of Nursing participates in Duke's centrally managed digital signage solution, Four Winds Interactive. This solution provides the School a centrally managed, robust tool for disseminating news, activities, and events pertinent to the DUSON community.  The School currently manages 3 signage displays in Clipp and Pearson. 

How To Use: 

Requirement(s) for Posting Content

  • DUSON Marketing and Communications manages the flyer submission and posting process.
  • Submit flyer(s) 3 business days in advance of when it needs to be posted.
  • While not currently a requirement, please review the details below for designing your flyer. Vertical flyers can continue to be submitted; however, the horizontal format using the best practices below for digital display will produce the highest quality and most professional look.

Expectations

Features

  • Upon a campus emergency alert, the signage will be controlled by the Duke emergency team and important information will be displayed.
