Traveling Coaches LegalMind 3.0 Enables Continuous Learning in Law Firms

DALLAS – February 14, 2019 – Traveling Coaches announced the newest version of the LegalMind® continuous learning solution. LegalMind 3.0 introduces a modern and intuitive interface with new capabilities to streamline employee onboarding, manage skill assessments and automate compliance verification.

A longstanding challenge we’re trying to address with LegalMind 3.0 is the disconnect among the various departments in a law firm that have learning and development goals. They need a way to track and report on continuing education and compliance. They need one place where people go when they ask themselves ‘How do I…?’ LegalMind is that place.
— Gina Buser, Founder and CEO of Traveling Coaches

An award-winning innovator in the areas of user adoption and learning development, Traveling Coaches has long been the strategic partner for law firms seeking to increase the return on their technology investments. Launched in 2016, LegalMind is the company’s continuous learning solution featuring a variety of legal-specific content and formats to enable people to learn the way they learn best – when, where and how they want. After nearly two years of research, focus groups, live demonstrations and other information gathering, the solution has been retooled and reborn as LegalMind 3.0.

“We’re proud to bring this new version of LegalMind to market. We’ve been developing micro-learning and are excited about the possibilities of things like gamification, announcements and dashboards to enhance the learning experience,” said Cindy Mitchell, Director of Product Development at Traveling Coaches. “Today’s learner has high expectations for finding exactly what they need quickly and easily ─ think of something similar to YouTube. LegalMind 3.0 has received tremendous feedback from focus groups and existing clients about the intuitive user interface and advanced administrative capabilities.”

LegalMind includes over 3,000 courses that can be combined into blended learning experiences consisting of videos, quick-step cards, knowledge checks, in-person and virtual courses, and simulations. Subjects range from communication to business development, client service delivery to problem-solving, and professional development to legal-specific technology. Learning plan templates for employee onboarding, skills gap mitigation and security awareness compliance make it possible to present consistent, compelling and effective learning programs to staff and lawyers alike.

LegalMind 3.0 increases learner engagement by introducing gamification with points, credits, badges, leaderboards and certificates. By making learning not only short, but also fun, LegalMind encourages continuous improvement and rewards personal development.  

Reporting has also been enhanced in the newest version of LegalMind. Human Resources, Information Security, Professional Development, supervisors and other stakeholders have access to dashboards and reports to manage talent development, track compliance and analyze skill development programs. A new mobile app enables learners to stay connected from trains, planes and automobiles.
