.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.
