26 Sep Trilby TV Digital signage made for education
As the JISC Effective Use of Technology in FE 2017 award-winning college, Portsmouth College understands the importance of communication to both staff and students. They know that giving ownership of digital display screens around the college helps to do this and TrilbyTV is their tool of choice.
Music Technology Teacher Chris Wood explains:
“The decision to use TrilbyTV was based on giving the students the ability to share and showcase, which is so important when a lot of student work is in the digital world. This has given our screens a new purpose and more importantly given students the opportunity to showcase their creative skills.”
Along with Chris, the students are creating content using a variety of apps, then easily adding to TrilbyTV for display along with the college’s twitter feed. Staff are able to add content directly to TrilbyTV and use it for college-wide messaging and notices. The Safeguarding Officer, Adam Court, uses Adobe Spark and Google Slides to generate great looking and engaging student information which is showing on screens around the whole site in a matter of minutes.
From a technology perspective, Brian Chivers, IT Operations Manager, is more than happy with how the system keeps him in control of the hardware, but hands over the creation of content and management of screens to staff.
“TrilbyTV enables us to give control to others, while still giving us the control we need for the day-to-day college functions.”
