Over the past decade students have embraced the ability to take classes online. Thanks to advanced technology and the increased availability of high-speed Internet, students can attend online classes and have access to the same quality educational resources and experiences they would receive in a traditional classroom, with some aspects actually improved.
Our Online Interactive Instruction™ model takes a modern approach to online paralegal education. Attend classes wherever you are with your computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone and broadband Internet connection. Meet with your instructor and classmates once a week to learn new information and gain skills. Use the rest of the week to prepare, study, and collaborate. Whether you prefer online classes or a traditional classroom setting, you receive the same curriculum and the same proven results.
Note: Due to COVID-19 and the need for social distancing, Center for Advanced Legal Studies is only enrolling students into online programs at this time.
You might be surprised at how far online learning has advanced. Center for Advanced Legal Studies incorporates industry leading technology from Blackboard, Instructure, and Microsoft into our online paralegal classes.
Afraid you will just be reading your textbooks and uploading assignments? Not at CALS.
Live class sessions are delivered with Blackboard Collaborate Ultra, the industry leading platform designed for education. Most online students attend classes live two days per week to meet with their instructor and classmates. The rest of the time they can access their courses and materials 24/7.
In live class students can see and hear their instructor and classmates, view PowerPoint presentations and legal documents live on the whiteboard, and raise their hands to ask questions. All sessions are recorded and can be viewed later on computers, tablets and smartphones.
Outside of class students use Canvas LMS to view prerecorded videos and lectures, interact in discussions about course topics, take self-tests and quizzes, and submit their assignments using Office 365. All these class activities can be accomplished on their schedule, when it is convenient for them.
Students who enroll in online classes love the experience. If you are interested in learning more, contact your admission representative to schedule a consultation which includes a demonstration of this fantastic technology.
