The Back Page | New Online Platform Makes OBA CLE a Breeze

By Janet K. Johnson

It seems like the human brain is always working. It begins the moment you are born and never stops until you need to find a way to write an article during a prolonged summer heatwave. Let’s see if I can redeem myself, shall we? Because triple-digit temperatures aside, I am very happy to have this opportunity to tell you about WebCredenza, the OBA CLE Department’s brand-new learning management system.

It’s no secret: For our members, online learning has become the preferred method for satisfying your MCLE requirements. Demand for virtual and remote learning was on the rise even before the COVID-19 pandemic erupted over two years ago. We recognize that many of our members prefer a digital interface even when in-person learning sessions are available. That means to best serve our members, we need to offer the best online experience available. We believe WebCredenza is the solution we have been looking for, and it went live for our members on Aug. 1.

Check it out at ok.webcredenza.com. If you haven’t taken a tour yet, I highly recommend that you do. It comes with a more user-friendly interface and built-in artificial intelligence (AI) to learn your viewing and search habits. What does that mean? A highly customized and personalized experience. Bottom line? It will save you time by learning what topics are most interesting and relevant to you, the user. The more you play, the better it gets!

Have you ever searched for a CLE of interest and received no results? With WebCredenza, the CLE Department is alerted to topics our members are looking for that we don’t yet offer. This helps us help YOU. After all, that is why we are here: to achieve top-notch member service by providing quality programming for all. And perhaps one of the best parts? There is no new username and password needed. The same way you’ve been logging in to your MYOKBar account remains the same.

As a member and your CLE director, I hope you find this new CLE platform to be as helpful and user-friendly as I have. If you have any questions about WebCredenza, please reach out to me at janetj@okbar.org. I can’t help you beat 100-degree weather, but I can help you make the most of this exciting new learning system that was developed with you, our members, in mind!

Ms. Johnson is the OBA director of Educational Programs.
