The SilverShield Visitor Management System

Virtual Academy

Professional Development Made Easy

SilverShield Virtual Academy is a Learning Management System (LMS) that is at the heart of the learning process for the members of the SilverShield Visitor Management System. The Virtual Academy allows designated personnel within your organization to assign video materials and assessments from both internal and external sources.

The Virtual Academy is pre-populated with videos and corresponding assessments on topics that address site safety in addition to a wealth of other topics. It is also completely customizable. You can select a video from almost any source or make your own video. You can write your own tests, set the format, number of questions, passing rate foryour staff, and completion date. Once assigned, an email with the attached video and assessment is sent to the individual or group. Once your staff completes the assessment they receive instant individual feedback and you receive the test scores, which are stored in the recordkeeping section by individual employee.

Virtual Academy record keeping allows you to track the professional development of each employee. Scheduling and carving out time for informational meetings and professional development is always challenging in a busy organization. Because the Academy is a virtual learning center, it allows you to provide important information to your staff without the need to constantly meet as a large group. The Virtual Academy provides your organization with an easy solution for keeping your staff educated on important topics and procedures.

The Most Advanced Cross-Platform VMS Available

The SilverShield Dashboard is an easy to use, functional approach to security. Intuitive buttons make the system navigable straight out of the box, while the robust back end programming ensures that visitors, staff, students, and special guests are reliably tracked at your site. Touch screen capabilities for mobile devices means that your security team can be wherever they need to be at your site, while still using the power of SilverShield to improve safety. Security teams and designated personnel can quickly put a campus on lock-down, generate campus watch-lists, and initiate background checks on visitors with the click of a button.

The SilverShield dashboard can also be accessed via the web, which means that stationary security houses can be hard wired for even faster speeds. SilverShield allows you decide who has access to which features by ‘User Type.’ Staff lists can be entered or imported into SilverShield by ‘Department’ or staff can even be invited to self-register. The look of the dashboard changes by User Type and permissions, so for example, any staff that you give permission to view the Virtual Academy will have the Virtual Academy icon on their dashboard and have access to the wealth of safety, educational, and professional development videos and assessments within the Virtual Academy module. SilverShield puts you in control of managing the safety and security at your site.
