  3. Stakeholder Millersville University wanted to provide an effective wayfinding solution for their students, staff and visitors to make the campus friendlier and easier to navigate. • “The school is on 250 acres” (Colleges.com). • There are 1,160 first year students and 6,282 undergraduate students • Total campus enrollment of 7,466 students. • The need to provide a solution was growing. 3

  4. Stakeholder Goals & Objectives The goal is to provide students, visitors and staff with an interactive campus directory kiosk that assists in navigating the campus. There will be stations placed in a few key places throughout the campus that are visible and easily accessible. Objectives • The objectives are to have an easy to use interactive campus directory kiosk. • The kiosk must first function as a campus wayfinding tool. • Must be easy to navigate. • Must provide information such as date & time, weather, and campus events. • Must function as an advertising medium when the kiosk is not in use. 4

  5. User Demographics The user demographic for the Interactive Campus Directory is vast. The targeted users vary in age can range from 18 or younger all the way up to the elderly. The majority of targeted users have an “average age of 21, and are full-time undergraduate students”. They are tech savvy and most if not all, utilize a smart phone, tablet or some kind of mobile device for communication and as such are familiar with touch technology. There will be users that are not as familiar with touch technology, these may include: • Parents and/or grandparents of soon to be graduates. • Older Alumni • Visitors and/or students and staff who have not used devices containing touch technology. 5

  6. User Needs & Objectives The directory will fulfill the user goal of getting information to get from point A to point B. New students unfamiliar with the campus and existing students not familiar with the whole campus as well as visitors to the campus, and staff, can benefit from a campus directory. • Central locations are needed for accessing information be able to navigate the campus. • Current date & time, weather forecasts, and campus events will be available. • Users will: • See their current location on a map • Be able to select the destination by touching the screen. • See a path to the intended destination. • Have the option of getting directions sent to via email or text to their mobile device. • Information is accessible fairly quickly as users will most likely be in between classes. • Multiple directories will make up directory stations to accommodate more users. 6

  11. Hypothetical User Scenario Leslie is an alumna of Millersville University and has been invited back after 20 years as a guest speaker. Leslie makes her way to the campus early and instantly realizes the campus has grown and developed over the years. As she parks her car and heads to where the admissions office used to be, she realizes it is the wrong building. While she did not pay attention to the traditional signage of the campus she has found a great parking spot and does not want to go through the trouble of looking for another. As she looks around she is delighted to see an Interactive Campus Directory. Leslie walks over to it and gets the information she needs sent to her cell phone and off she goes. As she walks towards her destination she is pleased with the experience she just had with the campus directory and her gears start turning. As a business development specialist she begins thinking of ways her clients could benefit from a similar solution. 11

  34. Digital Signage Software Details Four Winds InteractiveThe Four Winds Interactive software can handle data types common with databases and would be able to utilize existing database information and format it as needed for the project application. It contains “unparalleled mapping and wayfinding functionality” (Four Winds Interactive). Wayfinding The wayfinding function is built into the software. To start you need an image of a map or several images of floor maps for a building, then you can: • Declare a “you are Here” point • Plot points for each location on the campus. • Draw Paths to each point from the declared "you are here" location. • Set egress and ingress points for stairs and elevators to move between floors. • Zoom and panning of the map is also supported within the software. 34

  35. Architectural Map Notations: The overall kiosk will utilize the Hierarchical Branching design strategy. This type of design will allow the user to easily access the information they need from any screen they are on, via the global navigation area. The design strategy ensures that the user is able to navigate quickly while receiving the information they seek fulfilling the goals of the user and meeting the objectives of the stakeholder. The Linear Branching strategy is utilized when a user decides to send directions via email or text. After a user hits submit they will see a status message and get sent back to the screen they sent directions from. The home screen will appear after thirty seconds of inactivity from any of the second-level screens. After five minutes of inactivity on the home screen advertising mode will take over until the user touches the screen. 35
