Colorado Bar Association CLE Reinvents Its Website with CV Connect CMS

CBA CLE reinvented their website with Euclid's Content Management System, CV Connect, which allowed them all the benefits of a traditional CMS with the added benefits of an AMS integration.

 

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 their 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 thousands of products and hundreds of training events. ClearVantage Connect was able to provide CLE with the functionality it needed.

RESPONSIVE DESIGN

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 CLE because many of its members access learning resources and even take courses “on-the-go” using their mobile devices and tablets.
 

PERSONALIZED CONTENT

The new website also uses Euclid’s innovative taxonomy functionality to provide a personalized website experience for each of its members. CLE’s members are able to select their specific interests and have that information stored in their AMS, 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. 
 

ONLINE STORE

Colorado Bar Association CLE holds regular training events, and needs to be able to deliver both live and prerecorded education sessions to its members. 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.

 
“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’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 for Colorado Bar Association CLE,” explains Charlie Vinal, Euclid’s Founder and President. “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, “CLE is truly one of our most forward thinking clients, and it has been such a pleasure to work with them. Our partnership yields results for both Euclid and CLE, and we are excited to work together on more innovative functionality in the future.”
