Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) November 08, 2014
Colorado Bar Association CLE produces continuing legal education programs and legal publications for Colorado’s lawyers and judges. Managing and distributing these educational resources is a core part of CLE in Colorado, Inc.’s mission. A highly functional and intuitive website that allows members to easily access materials and information from any device was critical for CLE to move forward.
Colorado Bar Association CLE’s new website needed to meet a variety of requirements. The website needed to be built with responsive design, have advanced taxonomy functionality, and manage a resource library of hundreds of training events. ClearVantage Connect was able to provide Colorado Bar Association CLE with the functionality it needed.
By utilizing ClearVantage Connect’s responsive stylesheets, images and text objects on Colorado Bar Association CLE’s website are able to resize and rearrange to display beautifully on tablets, smartphones, and desktops. This is particularly important for Colorado Bar Association CLE because many of its members access learning resources and even take courses “on-the-go” using their mobile devices and tablets.
Colorado Bar Association CLE’s new website also uses Euclid’s innovative taxonomy functionality to provide a custom, personalized website experience for each of its members. Colorado Bar Association CLE’s members are able to select their specific interests once they have logged into the website. That information is then stored in Colorado Bar Association CLE’s association management software, ClearVantage. When the member returns to the website, he or she will see featured events and other learning products that are specific to their interests. This is both a great value added feature for members and an easy way to drive more revenue for Colorado Bar Association CLE by marketing the right products to the right people.
Manage Hundreds of Events Online:
Colorado Bar Association CLE holds regular training events, and it needs to be able to deliver both live and prerecorded education sessions to its members over multiple platforms. The live video and audio are recorded for each training event and are then used to create products each with a different delivery method (see below). Members can then access all of their downloaded materials from their personal dashboard from any device with an internet browser.
“We’re excited to go live with our new website,” explains Evan Brown, Manager of Media & Web Development at Colorado Bar Association CLE “Managing our extensive library of educational resources is one of the most important functions of our organization. Both ClearVantage and ClearVantage Connect have made that process considerably easier to manage for our staff and more personalized – and therefore more effective – for our members. We can’t wait to get feedback from our members about our reinvented online experience.”
“ClearVantage Connect will be a powerful tool Colorado Bar Association CLE,” explains Charlie Vinal, Euclid’s Founder and CEO. “Its new website is modern and aesthetically pleasing while also being highly functional. Members see products and events that are specific to their interests, and they’re able to view or listen to any of their downloaded resources from almost anywhere and on any device.” Concludes Vinal, “Colorado Bar Association CLE is truly one of our most forward thinking clients, and it has been such a pleasure to work with them over the last 15 years. Our partnership yields results for both Euclid and Colorado Bar Association CLE, and we are excited to work together on more innovative functionality in the future.”
