Believe it or not, virtual trials are a real thing!
BLM was able to create actual roles within its online training platform WebEx, simulating a life-like court-room experience. Opening virtual trials up internally and externally was crucial to maintain relationships, and Kallidus Learn allowed BLM to manage the process efficiently.
With the help of the online platform, various breakout rooms were created to emulate pre-meetings between barrister and client, and vital courtroom interactions were still able to go ahead.
Virtual trials were such a success, BLM is now making them into a series; there’s even a waitlist proving just how popular these are!
Learn LMS was essential to this process for many reasons:
- BLM was confident the whole process was compliant with Learn’s secure platform.
- The firm had a thorough understanding of who was attending and were able to adjust content accordingly based on experience.
- Managing attendee numbers was easy, so they could keep it small for the first trial and scale as popularity – and skillset – grew.
- BLM’s reputation for delivering innovative training remained intact, through meticulous management of the process via Learn.
Learn LMS was a game-changer
“We couldn’t have done it manually; there were too many moving parts. Being able to set parameters around how many people could join from our business, and our clients, and what level they were, at was game-changing. We were able to create the exact right level of training for the attendees, meaning it was productive and represented a great ROI.” – Claire Lloyd, Learning Technologist
It’s no secret that changing your ways of working was key, not just to surviving 2020 but also to moving your business forward and planning for a digital-first future – the word ‘pivot’ has never been so widely used in business strategy.
Learning technology resources need to be suitably agile for the growing demands of BLM’s now largely remote workforce and supporting BLM’s digital-first strategy. The firm now has a whole host of tools to help with BLM’s L&D strategy and Learn LMS is a key part of that offering.
