Arreya donates digital signage software to School of Journalism and Mass Communications

University of South Carolina students taking JOUR 393 - Digital Signage will benefit from a donation provided by Arreya Software. The company has given students in the class access to their digital signage software, allowing them the opportunity for hands-on experience with all areas of digital signage, from design and creation to distribution and scheduling.

Key course benefits for students:

  • Learning to target messaging for a variety of audiences.
  • Hands-on experience creating digital signage that meets industry standards.
  • Webpage of work samples available for portfolio.

Using Arreya’s software gives students the opportunity to learn about the process of scheduling and distributing digital signs remotely. By using a device enrolled in the Google Admin Console, students can operate public-facing signage in kiosk mode, preventing anyone from tampering with the content.

Key advantages of Arreya software for student learning:

  • Interfaces with Google applications commonly used by businesses.
  • Unlimited storage of graphics created using the Adobe Suite and other applications.
  • Edit content from any device with stable internet connection.

Digital signage is a growth area within marketing, and, through their donation, Arreya is helping students learn to be leaders in the field.

“The Arreya system provides our students with a tool to create, schedule, and display all types of digital signage. Like other hands-on training, it gets them ready for careers in the rapidly-growing digital signage industry,” says Augie Grant, J. Rion McKissick Professor of Journalism.

The mission of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications is to improve and strengthen the societal roles of the professions of journalism and mass communications through teaching, research and service. The school has a commitment to provide students with skills and practical experience in the latest communication technologies, from social media to digital signage.
