Distance Learning
“We are now a Peach”
We are excited to announce that effective August 14, we will officially be a “Peach!”  Peach New Media will now be hosting all of our online programming – both Live Web Casts and On-Demand seminars.  Our partnership with Peach New Media will ensure a better online learning experience and improved customer service. This partnership with Peach will also allow us to streamline and improve the online registration process, as well as MCLE reporting and record-keeping by allowing you to sign into all online programs and records with your Bar member log-in credentials.
Here are several things you need to know in order to make this a smooth transition:
*Beginning August 14, you will no longer use your InReach log-in and password. Instead, when registering for an SC Bar CLE Division Live Web Cast or purchasing an On-Demand program, you will use your SC Bar member log-in username and password just as you would when registering for any other SC Bar CLE seminar. 
*For any Live Web Casts or On-Demand programs you have completed within the last thirty days (and going forward with Peach), we will continue to automatically report your CLE credits to the SC Supreme Court Commission on CLE and Specialization. You won’t have to do anything different than before.
*For teleseminars sponsored by WebCredenza and purchased through the CLE Division and for web casts sponsored by Periaktos and purchased through the CLE Division, you will continue to use the log-ins specific t those partners. 

On August 14, make the switch and be a Peach!


Distance Learning: What is it?
Distance Learning is defined by the South Carolina Supreme Court on CLE & Specilization as alternatively delivered programming.  This means any programming that is web or telephone based and is delivered by these media to individual Bar Members.

Returning and New Customers:
To log-in to your account you will need to click here.  Click on the name of the program that you want to purchase.  On the next screen click on “more info”.  Choose the Register Now or Add to Basket button.  On the left hand side you will see SC Bar Member Log In.  Enter your Bar Number (if your number is less than 7 digits you will need to enter as many zeros before your bar number to make 7 digits.)  Enter your password and hit the Login button.  If you cannot remember your password you click on Forgot Password.  Follow those directions and you will then be able to reset your password.  There is a link for Login FAQ for more information.  Once you are into your account you can go through the payment instructions of the program that you have chosen.  Click Checkout then click on submit order.

Distance Learning: What are the Rules and Limitations?
here for a complete set of rules for alternatively delivered programming.

Supreme Court Commission on CLE rules allow SC Bar members to use “alternatively delivered programming” (i.e., telephone or Internet-based programming) to obtain up to 6.0 hours of MCLE each reporting period. These hours may come in any increment and may cover any type of credit required or allowed.  Hours earned via alternatively delivered programming may not be “banked” to the next reporting period.

Commission on CLE Rules require that each “live” or “on-demand” Internet-based (online) program must include a mechanism that will track attendance. SC Bar-CLE online programs include automated “checkpoints”which require the viewer to click on an on-screen prompt in order to verify continued participation. Each SC Bar CLE on-demand or live webcast program will include 4 (four)”checkpoint” prompts. These prompts will cover your screen and remain visible for 90 (ninety) seconds. You must click on EACH prompt in order to receive full credit for the program you are viewing.
