LL.M. Online Learning with Live Classroom Instruction

Real Classes in Real-time

In the LL.M. in Estate Planning and Elder Law, all courses are taught online. The courses are live and completely interactive. In other words, the classes are in real time. The courses are taught through the use of virtual classrooms over the Internet. Our distance-learning courses are completely synchronous. With this synchronous system, the professor and the students meet as the same time but not in the same place. Since we are employing a live synchronous system, the professor can engage the students in discussions. The classroom is equipped with a whiteboard on which the professor can write. The professor can also place PowerPoints and other visual aids on the screen for the students to review and discuss.

We have equipped each faculty member with a web camera which projects a real-time image of the professor during the class. Each student is supplied with a headset and microphone so that he/she can actively participate in classroom discussions. As an added feature, both the video and audio of all of our online classes are also recorded. If a student has to miss a class or wants to review a class, the student can watch and listen to the recorded class.

Our approach to distance learning provides unprecedented interaction with classmates and faculty, bringing the immediacy and intimacy of the classroom experience directly to your home, office, or wherever you may need to travel. Real-time instruction also provides the feedback that enables our professors to assess students' level of understanding, letting them pace instruction and clarify content as the class progresses, just like a traditional classroom.
