Investing in technology is a necessity for today’s educational institutions, but one Oklahoma university has discovered that the return on that investment proved to be more than just the learning benefits.
Last August, East Central University opened the Chickasaw Business and Conference Center, which houses the Harland C. Stonecipher School of Business. The facility features Rise Display’s digital signage to simulate a real-world trading environment. Walking into the building, visitors first see a 56-foot premium ticker display and 92-inch interactive video wall that provide up-to-the-minute information. Down the hall, a 55-inch interactive donor wall features photos and information about the University’s supporters and scholarship opportunities.
