Delivery for the Centralised Digital Signage

3 digital signage boards were successfully delivered at 3 schools on the 1st week of March 2021. 1 unit for each levels of education were determined; 2 units in Brunei Muara district and 1 unit in Tutong district. The rational of deploying to 3 different levels of school was to investigate and capture the impression and effect on digital education information and content from different demographics of school’s community. The distant between each school and their connectivity were considered in order to push information from the Public Relation Unit (PRU), MoE to schools. By mid of March, the proof of concept was successful as information can be circulated to the 3 schools in immediate manner. This can be a potential benefit to all schools or MoE’s departments across Brunei.
