CDTA: Distance Learning During Troubled Times
As the coronavirus pandemic sweeps across the country affecting every institution without exception, colleges and universities rush to adapt to address the hardships and inconveniences caused by the global shutdown and implement mechanisms for distance learning. While many law schools have been slow to incorporate distance learning into their curriculums, the CDTA has been on the cutting edge from its inception and implemented new, innovative ways of training students to be exceptional attorney-advocates.
The pandemic has removed a substantial degree of regularity from the lives of everyone who works or attends school. The CDTA made an early commitment to distance learning and helping students who cannot commit to a regular schedule. At this time, the CDTA is more than adequately prepared to address the needs of its students during the pandemic and minimize any disruption with the learning process. Any student engaged in online, distance learning at a progressive law school like California Desert Trial Academy College of Law, has the freedom to study whenever and wherever, at their utmost convenience.
The Zoom Video Conferencing Application available at the CDTA Student Portal allows students to stream classes online. Zoom’s technology offers students the opportunity to interact with professors and classmates in real-time. Another example of how CDTA allows students to utilize distance learning to earn a law degree at their convenience. While many law schools are only doing it now as the result of the pandemic, the CDTA Student Portal has given students access to recorded live classes 24 hours a day, seven (7) days a week for several years. The CDTA will continue to use these valuable online resources to meet the needs of our current students during the pandemic.
The ability to connect with students during these difficult times and provide classroom learning through the internet is an enormously beneficial tool. Students may attend CDTA through the digital Zoom platform from anywhere they have a laptop and a wifi connection. They can participate in class, and ask the professor or other students questions, as they would if they were there in person.
The California Desert Trial Academy is a progressive law school where students focus on those skills necessary to become not just a lawyer, but an attorney-advocate. Learning the skills to be an advocate gives students an expedient path to a successful and rewarding legal career. If you are interested in becoming an exceptional legal advocate, consider the benefits of the California Desert Trial Academy.
