Why Virtual Troop by Brightcore?

At Brightcore Consulting, we understand the importance a good LMS hosting partner.

Brightcore Consulting has put together the Virtual Troop LMS offering to include: online Journeys for Cadettes/Seniors/Ambassadors, Virtual Pathway, Volunteer Training, Cookie Sales Training, Fall Product Sales Training, and the Virtual Troop.  The product training is in direct response to many Girl Scout Councils reporting lower sales last year. The Virtual Troop is an attempt to retain Girl Scouts in the upper age ranges and increase retention as they get older. The Virtual Troop offering will give the Troop Leader an environment for better collaboration and tracking of the Virtual Troop and the Girl Scouts enrolled in that troop to include:

  • Unlimited Virtual Troops
  • Structured Troop environment online
  • Course and activity completion tracking
  • Assignment uploading, tracking and feedback tools
  • Online collaboration via discussion boards for each level
  • Troop leader led virtual meetings
  • Reporting for activities completed, time spent, etc
  • Flexible content creation for Troop leaders
  • Project and Pathway tracking with feedback
  • Auto generated completion certificates based on criteria
  • Journeys for Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors completely online
  • With the overall goal of creating a real “Troop” member feeling in cyberspace
  • Migrate or import completion data to SalesForce if your Council is implementing that solution
  • Costs less than 10% of your website migration and SalesForce implementation costs combined on average

The online training offered as gsusa.com is offered in the clear with no tracking or consolidated reporting. The Virtual Troop LMS will give you the detailed tracking information and advanced reporting you have been looking for!

We have been hosting Girl Scouts online training since 2011, As an example, we currently manage the Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska online learning system and developed their learning content modules for Discovering Girl Scouts and Connecting to Your Grade Level located at http://training.girlscoutsnebraska.org. Last year, the Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska moved entirely to an on-line training format for the mandatory volunteer training courses with great success and costs savings. Over 1,000 volunteers have taken the online courses which uses a single curriculum to teach a consistent set of standards and objectives to all. The Learning Management System and the online learning modules made training the rural troop leaders more efficient and effective while reducing costs for all involved.

Our experience has shown us that each Council is unique and requires a different solution. Brightcore Consulting is here to work with you to find a solution that is appropriate for your requirements and budget. This flexibility ranges from all inclusive hosting and support packages to a shared revenue model that greatly reduces start-up costs. The LMS is fully customizable to your needs. Add profile fields, create custom reports, export all data or import in-person training records.

Can we set up a time to discuss how Brightcore can partner with your Council to take advantage of your own Learning Management System to cut costs and train your volunteers more effectively?
