Add Ability to Give a Free CLE Credit
Many users are unsatisfied with the current CLE 7-Day free trial, as they cannot actually obtain a credit. We would like to the ability to offer 1 free credit as an alternate draw to leads for the CLE subscription.
Organize and add CLE course information into sections on course page
Currently on the course page we only list a presenter-written course description and the course transcript. To give users a better idea of whether or not they should spend time taking the course, we could list the course information in sections such as “Overview,” “What You Will Learn,” and “Topics.” Possibly a section for “Who should watch.” Under Overview, we would show the course description. Under What You Will Learn, we’d show the course learning objectives. This field already exists in active admin. Under topics, we could list the practice area sub-topics (also already in active admin). We would need to be able to tag more than one topic per practice area. For example, the course Drafting Mediation Statements could be tagged with ADR, Plaintiff, Drafting, etc. The topics listed on the page could also help with SEO.
Personalize featured course based on user practice area
Currently, the featured course is the same for CLE users across all practice areas. However, it is less likely that CLE users will view a course that is not applicable to their practice. Example: An M&A attorney is unlikely to watch a Litigation or Trial Skills course, even if it is “featured”. Featuring a course to users that is specific to their practice area would make it more likely they would view the course. This also makes the experience easier on the user because the featured course is something applicable to them and they don't have to do a filtered search.
Consider more biomedical technology and cybersecurity CLE courses
Idea from a current student, we let her know she is not eligible to teach yet. -- First name: Nina Last name: Alli Email: Nina@villageb.io Organization name: Biohacking Village Description: Greetings Quimbee! The Biohacking Village ( villageb.io ), a 501C3 not for profit organization focuses on biomedical technology and cybersecurity. I am currently attending The George Washington University Law School and wish there was more content with this focus since there are new laws, rules, and regulations by state, nationally and internationally that impact this sector. I would love to team up on such content as well as offer CLEs to lawyers that come to the Biohacking Village for information.
Make live webcast pages more obvious
The indicators of the live webcast pages are really small and easy to overlook based on their colors. See annotated screenshot for suggestions!
Consider international CLE offerings
Other countries also have regulated continuing education requirements similar to US jurisdictions. For example, the Philippines has 40K -76K lawyers (total unclear) that must complete 36 hours every three years. https://globalnation.inquirer.net/204471/why-it-is-important-to-regularly-comply-with-the-mcle-requirement https://globalnation.inquirer.net/205159/how-mcle-has-become-flexible-and-accessible-in-the-philippines
Offer live, in-person newly-admitted CLE as a B2B sales tool
Several jurisdictions still require at least some of their newly-admitted attorney CLE to be live, in-person or at least streamed to a group setting. Offering these courses could be a way to attract law firms to a group subscription. For example, PLI holds Ohio newly-admitted CLE on-site at large law firms. New York also has a live newly-admitted requirement.
