A Distance Education Approach to Continuing Legal Education in South Dakota Using Public Television Overnight Service.
The South Dakota Public Television Overnight Service was created to utilize the late night and early morning hours for the distribution of instructional, informational, cultural, and educational television programming throughout the state, including continuing legal education. Intended to provide a means for members of the legal profession in South Dakota to complete specified amounts of continuing education, the Continuing Legal Education (CLE) program demonstrates the application of distance education methods in a rural setting as it offers self-instructional programs on videotape recordings. The overnight service has a number of benefits for bar members participating in particular programs, the CLE Committee of the State Bar of South Dakota, and the South Dakota Public Television Overnight Service. These benefits include low cost of delivery and use, convenience and frequency of use, and increased awareness of public television broadcasting services. (DB)
