Flipping the classroom works. Here’s what it is and how to do it at your firm.
How Hotshot works
Hotshot videos provide simple explanations of complex concepts. They’re short, broken into sections of a few minutes each, and designed for mobile. The videos mimic great mentoring sessions, with engaging presenters who walk through documents and show examples.
Quizzes reinforce what users learn in the videos. They explain the right and wrong answers and include spreadsheet simulations that help lawyers master calculations that come up in practice.
Exercises and outlines
Exercises help organizations run more effective live programs, such as flipped-classroom sessions. Outlines summarize the key points from the videos and can be used for reference and as handouts at training classes.
