Video-Based Online Training

Custom tailored courses that allow you to learn online, at your own pace

Virtual Classrooms, also known as VC, that host multimedia video documents, video-conferencing, and online training with internet delivery and support, have revolutionized software courses the same way Google, Westlaw and Lexis have changed brick and mortar law libraries.

Online training using VC has been proven to help overcome a well known, widespread training challenge – that of lecturing to the "middle" of a class, or teaching a group of individuals with varying backgrounds the same material at the same pace. Up to now, it has never really been successful. As advanced trainees and fast learners get bored, tune out and play solitaire, laggards get lost and also tune out, and pretty soon half the class isn't focused or paying attention. Bill Gates, whose foundation has invested millions in computer assisted instruction, CAI, argues that education can be truly customized, where each student gets individualized help when needed without waiting for the instructor’s office hours.

PerfectLaw® trainees can now login to their VC and communicate with trainers/learning coaches using the latest telecommunications technologies either real time (via e-mail, chat or even face-to-face with WebEx or Skype) or at their own pace (via multimedia video based documents). This training method provides a higher value, higher quality proposition than brick and mortar classrooms.

The expectation for anybody using PerfectLaw® training online is that once they complete any course, daily tasks will be easier, faster, and more accurate thereby creating efficiency and greater production.
