All Diploma Centre courses offer flexible online learning options. You can learn about the Diploma Hub and the webcasting of lectures below.
Diploma Hub is a learning management system but is effectively a “website”. The Diploma Team use it as a learning tool. The site is designed to keep you informed about all aspects of the course you are attending and will contain the links to the webcasting feature. The site will also act as a repository for course schedule information, course materials and as a point of access to webcasts (if applicable). Access to Diploma Hub is only for the duration of your particular diploma or certificate course and will be withdrawn upon course completion. At the start of your course there will be an introductory lecture during which you will be shown how to use and access this site. All course participants are given a log in and password at course commencement.
How to login to Diploma Hub
- Go to https://lawschool.lawsociety.ie
- Enter your username and password. You will be advised of your unique numerical username in advance of commencing the course. The initial password is set to ‘changeme’.
- You will be prompted to change your password to something secure that you will remember.
If you have any login queries, email email@example.com
Blended learning means that our course participants can decide to attend the onsite lecture or, alternatively, to access a webcast of the lecture online via the course website. These webcasts are available live but are also available to play back on demand at a time that suits you. Our customised design for the webcast facility has an inbuilt message board allowing participants to message the lecturer live thus adding to the potential for interaction and providing remote learners with an authentic lecture hall experience. Lectures are webcast ‘live’ on our secure internet site and will remain on the Diploma Hub for the duration of the course.
Mobile Professional Learning (MPL) Project
Accessibility is one of the key factors in providing professional continuing development courses for busy practitioners, many of whom are working full time. We are driven to provide practitioners with a variety of means to access our courses and consume content.
The ‘mobile professional learning’ or MPL project combines a number of technological initiatives, including a specifically designed learning management system, blended learning (on-site and online), customised webcasting of lectures and an app designed specifically to facilitate a student-centred approach and place control in your hands.
