Lloyd Gosselink Rochelle & Townsend, P.C. was looking for a way to provide individualized, targeted, user-driven trainings through a robust LMS that could be easily updated with firm-provided content and supported by a company with outstanding customer service.
They chose SavvyAcademy LMS. Using the robust (yet affordable) LMS, Trainer Maritta Terrell has been able to craft learning paths for various groups in her firm. She has also streamlined new hire training demands and she appreciates the constant updates of available content.
“I have recommended SavvyAcademy LMS frequently to other firms because the premise of the Savvy LMS works: it is easy to use, there are two ‘flavors’ to choose from (in the cloud or locally managed in-house), the support is awesome (the best vendor support I’ve seen anywhere for legal products), and the price is very reasonable,” says Terrell.
Maritta reports that she has used SavvyAcademy LMS to achieve the following:
- Introducing the LMS to the firm: When we introduced SavvyAcademy to the firm, we made it mandatory for all support staff to complete 11 courses so they could learn how to use and search for classes. This spurred many on to look at other courses available from Savvy, such as Publisher, all the Excel and PowerPoint classes, and more.
- Learning Paths: We are now working on creating learning paths in the LMS for various groups, such as secretaries, paralegals, case clerks and law clerks. We will add the attorneys, as well.
- New Hire Training: I am working on a process in which the user would watch a video or two, and then I would meet with them and direct what they’ve learned to practical, real office procedures (flipped learning concept). We are also using it to assure that new hires watch the video that our in-house employment attorney produced.
- Ongoing Training: Again, using the flipped learning method, I plan to assign courses for students to watch before they come to the training room. Then we will go through an exercise that consolidates what they learned in the course video, and bring up questions they encounter doing the exercise, with me (the trainer) right there available to answer the questions as needed.
