COM-FSM's Information Technology (IT) office installed a 42 inch flat screen informational panel at the National Campus Administration Building. The information panel pilot project will be used to deliver college related information to students, faculty, staff and visitors of the campus. The panel will display news, emergency alerts, event announcements and other information from the college.
The pilot project is a move towards improving the College's communications capabilities and ability to disseminate information to its constituents. The project began by request of former President Spensin James.
The information panel is remotely controlled and its contents are simultaneously updated along with the college’s website and the myShark portal news and information sections. The pilot testing will end by summer 2011. The college hopes to deploy this technology at all its campuses.
