.LRN Overview

What is .LRN?

.LRN is a feature rich application for use in web-based learning communities. .LRN (pronounced “dot-learn”) comes loaded with options out of the box, including everything from tracking options to assessment to surveys and syllabuses. A fully customizable solution, .LRN allows instructors to find the layout, language, time zone, and portals that work for them.

.LRN was developed at MIT, and has grown into the most widely used open-source software for enterprise e-learning and digital community creation. With over half a million users in education, government, and the non-profit sector, it’s no wonder that .LRN is considered an industry leader in Learning Management Systems.

.LRN is backed by the  nonprofit .LRN Consortium, .LRN is dedicated to innovation in educational technology using open source code. .LRN is a multinational solution, with many languages, dialects, and time zones supported. Further, additional languages and dialects are constantly being added, and end-users have the option of adding a language or dialect themselves using the online distributed translation interface that comes with .LRN.

With so many options at your fingertips, the .LRN framework has the potential to be daunting. Luckily, the designers at the .LRN consortium have got you covered. To help get users over the initial learning curve, .LRN provides tutorials and then an extensive support system. Users may employ a do it yourself instructional guide, or use the available support network to boost their productivity and deepen their understanding of the .LRN available resources.

End-users may host .LRN on their own servers, or turn to .LRN consortium member companies for hosting solutions. With clients like the MIT Sloan School and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government Leadership, you can rest assured that the consortium member companies handling your hosting services will be only of the highest quality.

We've had an outstanding experience, and the support we get is top-notch.

Vault is a reliable, well-coded platform that rarely causes problems during mergers. It features an excellent diffmerge tool and interfaces with Visual Studio effectively. Because it is stand-alone and offline compatible, this may not work well if a different team member has to upload a file that is checked out. With Vault, branching and forking are not very reliable.

  • Excellect customer support, option for SSO, third-party integration, training resources available.
  • None.

It has some glitches.

The LRN Catalyst Platform is a user-friendly platform for managing ethics and compliance that is attractive to the eye. It is an effective tool for yearly compliance training since it is simple to use and has a strong recordkeeping database. But by incorporating an artificially intelligent voiceover program, expanding the selection of images, and introducing more narration, the platform might be made better.

  • Pleasant to use and easy to navigate and create slides.
  • More reading is needed, limited narration and image selection should be improved.
