Engage students with a social wall and encourage them to share their campus experience on social media
Use a social wall to engage students and parents during events. Be it sports events, events organised by students, conferences, graduation and welcome parties, or even fundraising events — a social wall will connect your community, help you collect authentic User-Generated Content and spread the word about your university.
University social media wall displays help create a sense of community. They foster interaction and engagement and are a great way to show school pride. You can also use them to spread relevant information to students, whether it’s about cancelled classes or upcoming events, or just encourage them to share their campus experience.
Using a social wall on the university website helps you keep students up to date with content that you already create for your social media channels. It also adds compelling social proof by displaying authentic content posted by your students. This is content that’s highly influential and will encourage new students to pick your university over others.
Using social media in higher education
The Tinkham Veale University Center has a two-story multimedia wall by the entrance. This multi-touch video wall is a communication hub that brings students, staff, and faculty together.
Our two-story media wall, with its two social walls, keeps our campus community informed and connected. We get a lot of requests from all over campus, asking us to display specific department accounts or hashtags on the wall. The media wall is also an excellent selling point for conferences and workshops hosted at our venue. Event organizers love seeing content for their hashtags show up on the big screens.
TEDx Donauinsel and TEDx Freiburg share how they’ve used social walls to engage their audience and enhance events.
TEDx is all about ideas and the conversations that will spark from them. The social wall helps accelerate these conversations as they’re accompanying the talks in real-time, but it also serves as an archive for audience reactions after the event.
