Interactive Technology in King Hall UC Davis School of Law
Touch Screen Monitors give students and visitors an interactive experience at the UC Davis School of Law, King Hall.
The Univeristy of California, Davis uses touch screen monitors in their law school to educate visitors on the school's history, and provide information on faculty members. Additionally UC Davis uses interacitve way-finding applications on the touch screen to guide users to thier desired destinations.
There at total of 14 large touch screens (provided by Horizon Display) throughout the facility. While the majority of the displays run a directory application with interactive way-finding, a strategically placed touch screen next to the famous statue of Martin Luther King is used to educate visitors on MLK and the School of Law.
The content gives students and visitors several options. They can view history and information on the statue of Martin Luther King, see Dr. King's Life Story, or see a full history of King Hall. Additionally this featured touch screen lets you view photos, videos, and a timeline on king hall.
Attracting students and pedigreed new faculty to colleges is getting more difficult as competition is increasing for enrollment and faculty. UC Davis chose to leave the competition in the dust with thier renovation of King Hall. The 14 large touch screens help bring excitment and enhance the image of the School of Law. The narrative told on the displays, and the interactive element make prospective and curent students feel like they are part of something special.
Directories and way-finding while simple, do increase university brand awareness and make life easier for students by pointing them exactly where they want to go. Being a recent UCD economics graduate , part of the appeal of attending the college was the pedigree and track record of my professors. Understanding just how reputable your professors are in their field, sometimes even on a global level tends to be a big driver of enrollment appeal.
Having an emerrsive interactive way to learn about future professors while touring a potential campus, is a great way to build excitement and can play a huge part of the decision on what university to attend. UC Daivs chose to leave no stones unturned at the King School of Law, and gave all visitors an interactive experience.
