LRN Launches Catalyst Engage.AI, Powerful AI-Driven Functionality to Transform the Learner Experience

NEW YORK (June 18, 2024) – LRN Corporation, the leader in ethics and compliance (E&C) solutions that enable organizations to inspire principled performance, today unveiled Catalyst Engage.AI – a powerful new AI-driven functionality designed to transform and enhance the learner experience.

A new addition to its award-winning Catalyst platform, Catalyst Engage.AI is first being introduced through three all-new, AI-enabled microlearnings specifically for Anti-Bribery & Corruption, Anti-Money Laundering, and Conflicts of Interest. LRN is breaking new boundaries when it comes to E&C learning by leveraging cutting-edge AI technology to present real-world ethical dilemmas, encouraging learners to engage in meaningful conversations and make thoughtful decisions. The courses are just the beginning of several planned additions to Catalyst Engage.AI platform that LRN has planned for 2024 and 2025, which include new AI-enabled solutions and learning experiences. 

These new AI-enhanced courses – the first of several to be rolled out over the months ahead – are designed to drive better retention and transform E&C training into an impactful journey of discovery and growth. Driven by the new Engage.AI functionality, learners will now be able to experience:

  • A video introduction to the specific risk area, as well as targeted follow-up explainers
  • An AI-powered scenario with a dilemma to be solved, along with a quiz for the learner
  • Interactive, real-time conversations with AI characters in order to simulate real-world scenarios
  • A time-capped conversation to ensure that the learning experience is short and efficient
  • Personalized and AI-driven feedback on the learning exercise

Overall, the open-ended nature of the courses inspires active participation and thoughtful responses, prompting learners to think critically and ask probing questions. And because the Engage.AI functionality can adapt to each learner’s responses, the courses are able to provide a more personalized and effective learning experience that meets individual needs and learning styles – as well as playing an important role in helping legal, human resources, and compliance leaders to create ethical business cultures, comply with regulations, and improve performance.

According to LRN’s 2024 Ethics & Compliance Program Effectiveness Report, providing a more personalized learning experience is critical to E&C program effectiveness. More specifically, over half (54%) of high-performing E&C programs have implemented custom content to address specific risks or challenges, showcasing the importance and effectiveness of having succinct, meaningful and tailored learning experiences.

“With the growth of AI, it’s imperative that organizations look to use its capabilities as a tool to enhance learning experiences, which is exactly the approach that we have taken at LRN,” said Justin Garten, LRN’s Senior Director of AI and Data Science. “Our Engage.AI platform uses the power of AI to create experiential learning scenarios that are applicable to the modern workplace, and provide customized feedback and support to meet learners where they are. As we continue to embed this innovation across our Catalyst platform, it promises to be truly transformative to the learner experience.”

“At LRN, we are committed to empowering the modern global workforce with the solutions and experience to navigate the critical risk areas that organizations face today,” added Kevin Michielsen, CEO of LRN. “AI has the potential to transform corporate learning and how strong, ethical cultures are built and maintained. LRN is proud to be leading the way in this regard.”
