Graham Glass, Founder & CEO, CYPHER LEARNINGGraham Glass, Founder & CEO Denis Diderot, the French man of letters and philosopher, said it best, “Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things.”

The purpose may be why we journey, but passion is the fire that lights the way. It is the relentless passion for education and innovation that led Graham Glass to push the envelope of e-learning and create a bigger impact on the way people learn. After his position as a senior lecturer at the University of Texas, Graham gained extensive experience in distributed computing and focused on building reliable corporate training and software products. In due course, Graham decided to bring his passion into play by founding CYPHER LEARNING—a leading provider of learning platforms for schools, organisations, and entrepreneurs around the world.

CYPHER LEARNING is an e-learning company with a commitment to delivering the best learning and teaching experience to millions of learning enthusiasts. The company offers three products—NEO LMS for Schools and Universities, MATRIX LMS for Businesses, and INDIE LMS for Entrepreneurs. “Today, CYPHER LEARNING is the only company that provides learning management systems for the entire e-learning market spectrum—academic, corporate, and individuals. Besides, we are completely distributed and global, working directly with customers in 100+ countries,” says Graham, CEO of CYPHER LEARNING.

A Step Ahead in E-Learning

Graham explains that today K-20 schools are focused on competency-based learning and automation, which allows educators and trainers to track learners’ performance down to the level of individual skills. On the other hand, organisations are looking to make the courses more fun-filled for learners as asynchronous learning gains momentum amid the pandemic. NEO provides gamification and automation features whereby a student receives pop-ups with badges, awards, and points upon finishing a lesson or assessment.

Also, teachers and instructors can set up the platform to automatically reveal advanced and remedial materials when students perform well or when they fall behind.

To optimise the learning journey, CYPHER LEARNING will introduce its first version of an intelligent learning platform (ILP). ILP is designed to understand the learning goals of individual learners, sift through various rules and artificial intelligence (AI) functionalities, and make recommendations for learners on how to get better.

At the core of CYPHER LEARNING is a learning platform with different branded versions, which provides advantages for the company in all sectors it competes in. For instance, MATRIX, a world-class business LMS, supports state-of-the-art ad-hoc reporting, dashboards with drag and drop widgets, and all the required integrations. NEO customers can also automatically unlock these functionalities. What makes NEO unique is the fact that no other K-20 LMS supports built-in ad-hoc reporting, allowing administrators and teachers to create drag and drop custom reports, generate and embed them in widgets, and customise eye-catching dashboards without technical skills. Similarly, all platforms support cutting-edge learning-based competencies, sophisticated gamification and automation features.

Relentless Pursuit of Excellence

All of CYPHER LEARNING’s LMS offerings have an incredibly intuitive interface. Customers can sign up and start using the LMS without any installation hassle or training. The platforms have a two-week trial period that allows users to test out different features and learning scenarios.

However, backed by an experienced EdTech training team, the company helps customers who require custom training programs to support hundreds of thousands of learners. The EdTech team follows the best practices to set up the system and ensure the successful adoption of an LMS in a large institution. Besides, the company’s highly proficient consulting group helps customers add additional custom functionality when needed. CYPHER LEARNING takes pride in its rapid response support team. When a customer raises a complaint or a question, the company tracks it internally and provides an answer in under ten minutes. “From the very early engagement, all the way through to deployment, we provide our customers with various services,” notes Graham.

A testament to CYPHER LEARNING’s robust capabilities is the success of a K-20 institution with over 30,000 students. The institution used an old and unreliable open-source system, which was difficult to scale and adversely affected their students. Impressed with NEO, the customer approached CYPHER LEARNING to migrate all their students and over 5,000 courses to the platform. The company fulfilled their requests seamlessly and helped them go live in two weeks.

Unlike most of its competitors, which have raised funds early on for their ventures, CYPHER LEARNING has been growing year after year steadily and profitably. Recently, the company made a big splash in the marketplace by raising a $40 million growth equity round from Invictus Growth Partners. CYPHER LEARNING envisions doubling or tripling in size in coming years. The company has entered into a strategic partnership with Dell Technologies and Microsoft. Also, as a preferred learning platform provider for Dell, CYPHER LEARNING has secured large deals from countries around the world. Many of these are from governments that demand country-wide disaster-proof learning platform strategies.

Not resting on its laurels, CYPHER LEARNING constantly upgrades its platform and plans on infusing it with AI and smart automation features. As the world gets closer to the widespread adoption of augmented reality, CYPHER LEARNING is looking to integrate this technology into its platform and continue raising the bar for LMS functionality.
