Our new Learning Common will have a large screen next to the self checkout. We'd like to have useful and entertaining library related material showing. Has anyone implemented something like this?
I have ideas of what I'd like to see on it...very short screencasts of "how to's", new book display covers, selected RSS feeds scrolling though, staff/students favourite picks....maybe a chatterwall.
My problem is the setup to make it happen. What software would we need to control the cycling through ? Could we somehow have it playing like a "library channel" online as well as displaying on the screen? How to change content and who controls it how? We are PC based, not Mac based.
Anyone using a large screen? How do you use it? Anyone tried something like my ideas? How did you execute it?
