Forum .LRN Q&A: Boston Museum of Science Launches .LRN

Press Release...

Museum of Science, Boston, one of the world's largest science centers and an emerging hub of educational innovation, today launched its new state-of-the-art Learning Management System based on .LRN.

During the first phase, the Museum has rolled out .LRN's e-commerce module to process all course registrations. LRN's e-commerce module is also being used to process and manage telephone, fax, and mail-in registrations, serving as the administrative hub for centrally managing all registration information.

As a regional and national leader among science museums, the Museum of Science serves as a pioneer in building technological literacy. As it continues to expand its innovative educational course offerings, the Museum plans to deliver a range of on-line course content with full collaboration capabilities using .LRN.

Rob Ross, the project lead for the implementation, "The Museum's mission is to enhance knowledge of technology in our community and nationwide. We are pleased to take this step with .LRN to build our online capabilities—offering web site browsers the convenience of using this technology to register online for a variety of science- and technology-related courses at the Museum."
