What is My Learning?

BriefBox provides users with access to an online repository of Learning Submissions (including articles, videos and webcasts, PowerPoint presentations and podcasts) via My Learning. Users can view, download and submit Learning Submissions from the My Learning page. Law firms and in-house teams can contribute learning materials in a range of formats, which can then be searched and accessed by BriefBox users.

Managers can assign learning materials to their teams, and even set up Pathways that collate a range of materials for their teams to work through. And all completed materials can be logged in the online CPD Tracker, making it easier for lawyers to monitor their ongoing learning requirements.
