In comparison with existing LMS’s, which are housed in closed walls with limited access to learners and instructors within institutions, used to merely manage courses online, CN is an open, free, academic and social networking framework scalable to massive numbers of learners from any place in the world within a single environment. CN is free for all to use across the globe.
