Engaging colleagues and students is no small feat. In the digital age, capturing their attention demands real-time, relevant information. Digital signage at University of Kentucky is a visual medium we use to communicate more effectively with dynamic and engaging messages.
Visual content reaches our brains faster than text alone. Research shows humans can decode visual information 60,000 times faster than when simply digesting text. Used strategically, digital signage is powerful in connecting with colleagues to deliver a message or inspire action while reinforcing culture, values and brand. Digital signage is an integral part of the University of Kentucky experience, providing information and engaging emotions to inform, nurture and guide the campus community.
