Posting Information to the LCD/LED Screens

Good morning,

Some of you may be wondering about how to get content from your classes, ASAs, etc onto the screens around the school. Here is a reminder about how to do that.

First, as they are horizontal screens, we would like to ask that any content you do submit, that you follow these protocols:

  • For all media submissions, please ensure that they maximize the horizontal perspective that the screens provide (i.e. landscape layout)
  • If you are submitting a single document (i.e. flyer) please make sure to make the text as large as possible (again using landscape layout) and high-resolution images (200dpi/A3 format would help ensure the size and pictures look correct)
  • Keep videos to 1GB or less
  • If you are unsure about how to make a slideshow, you can just put all the pictures in a folder and put your request to make a slideshow in your email
  1. Save all of these in a folder on the Large File Storage server (either Student or Teacher, doesn’t matter as long as you follow Step #2)
  2. Send the link/folder location to it-help@nanjing-school.com
  3. Please put an appropriate subject heading (like Student Council poster, Swimming Gala, etc.) on the email in Step #2
  4. Please also include the duration that you would like your media to run (i.e. 1 week, 2 days, etc., keeping in mind that 2 weeks is maximum duration)

And don’t hesitate to ask us for help as well, if you have an idea but you’re not quite sure how to make it happen. But please give us at least 24 hours (1 day) notice.

Second, here is the list of screens and their location:

  • 2nd Floor Cafe – the Centre (Pool/Activities)
  • Foyer Centre (Admissions)
  • Centre/Pool Hallway (Pool)
  • Foyer/School Entrance – by the sliding doors (Admin)
  • Foyer/School Entrance – by Library (Library/Admin/Student Council)
  • Library (Library)
  • End of Hall by Green Gym – 70″ Screen (Design/Activities)
  • 2nd Floor across from IT Office (MS/US/Activities/Counseling)
  • 2nd Floor, end of MYP/DP Hall (Middle/Upper School)
  • 2nd Floor by Music Department (Music/Student Council)
  • PAC (Drama)

In parenthesis/brackets are departments with primary content oversight, though you can always send email to it-help@nanjing-school.com with your request and we can sort it out. Thanks and have a wonderful day!

All the best,

Your Friendly IT Department

Save Your Work Easier!

Attention students in grades 4-12!

Ever finish a great idea on the whiteboard, white-table or notebook and want to save it in a format that you can easily use for class? Want something better than just snapping a picture with your phone only to have to try and remember what day you took it, or what the picture immediately before and after it was? Do you wish it was searchable?

Well, Office 365 just made it a lot easier! Make your lives easier by downloading the OneDrive App on your phone or iPad today!

Create folders on the fly or use the ones that you’ve copied from your desktop, snap a picture, then select the folder and name the pic and voila! You have a neat photo or PDF now saved exactly where you need it (and it’s searchable from your laptop, tablet, or phone). Stay tuned for more info coming soon from a teacher or tech coach near you!

Download to your mobile device of choice here:

For a quick overview of how it works, check out the video for what it looks like on an Android Device below!
