The plasma screens within the Farmer School were installed to provide information specifically pertinent to our students. Top priority for content posting is given to information from the School itself and from organizations within the School, targeted to our students, including:
- Events and Speakers
- Internship and Job Opportunities
- Faculty News
- Deadlines and Schedule Changes
- New Course Offerings
- Club and Organization Postings
Second priority is given to University-generated information important to our students and faculty, such as:
- New Policies
- University-Sponsored Events
- General Information
When space is available, we will consider content that, while not originating from the Farmer School, may be of interest to our students.
About The Plasma Screens
The content on the screens changes every 15 seconds, therefore, content should be short and concise (suggested word maximum is 30). Content remains posted for one week, unless there is a compelling reason for an extended run. We are quality and content conscious and will only display information that is appropriate and professionally presented.
To Request Content Posting
Submit your request via email to Jay Murdock, and allow at least one full week between your email and your requested start date. In your email, include a short explanation of:
- Who you are (student group, faculty, external organization…), and the best way to contact you
- What the content is promoting
- Why/how your information is important to Farmer School students and/or faculty
- Desired start date
In the email, attach the graphic you would like to have uploaded. Content must be 1920 x 1080px to fit and display properly. (Note: These are the exact dimensions of a PowerPoint slide in Widescreen format) Content should be submitted in .jpg or .png format. In addition, please check your spelling, grammar and overall accuracy.
We can now generate QR codes for links. If you wish to have a QR code that viewers can scan to get to a registration form/survey/etc., include the link with your image request. PLEASE NOTE: Graphics for slides to include a QR code must be 1220 x 1080px (slightly wider than square)
