Our roots

Graham Glass, the founder and CEO of CYPHER Learning, started the company after realizing the limitations of traditional on-premise learning management systems (LMS) while he was a professor at the University of Texas, Dallas. Frustrated with the slow implementation of courses and the lack of engagement in outdated systems, he established CYPHER Learning in 2009 to create a scalable and innovative learning platform.

The company introduced solutions for academia and business in subsequent years, aiming to be human-centric and focused on unleashing potential. Graham's passion for education and innovation is at the core of the company's identity, driving them to continuously seek better solutions.

CYPHER has emerged as a leader in AI in education and training, gaining recognition from industry experts. Headquartered in Plano, Texas, with a global presence, CYPHER Learning remains committed to improving learning experiences by asking, "How can we make learning experiences even better?"

Unleash human potential

Modern learners, educators, trainers, and everyone involved in education yearn for learning experiences that are both meaningful and compelling. Though many learning platforms claim to deliver what businesses and academia want and need, they’ve failed to deliver on that promise. Outdated, complex, and clunky platforms make learning feel like a chore. An obligation. A tick-the-box requirement on the task list. Businesses and academic institutions alike desire and demand modern, holistic learning - to keep competitive, entertained, and ready for what’s ahead. To unleash human potential, we must do things differently.

The necessary disruption of learning

Learning goes beyond the classroom, conference room, and living room. It is no longer bound by time, either. Learning is continuous, spontaneous, and all around us. Technology has catapulted the way we learn into an exciting and unprecedented state. L&D professionals, trainers, educators, and course creators must figure out how to thrive in this new order. This requires a disruptor. A catalyst for change. To be successful, learning must be dynamic, personalized and human-centric.

Human-centric
1: 1

Dynamic and personalized content is proactively delivered to learners through platform-wide automation. With AI-infused technology, learning scales exponentially - giving everyone more time and more energy to focus on the creative and human-centric parts of learning. This is how we help teachers, trainers, L&D pros, admins - everyone - unleash human potential.

2017

Instructor then learner-centric
1: many

Platforms empower L&D teams and educators to create courses and content. Content is pushed to and consumed by learners.

2008

IT-centric
1-way

LMSs were on-premise and run by IT teams. Leaders and teachers set training agendas and courses were created by IT teams, sometimes taking years to implement resulting in long learning lags and gaps.

Why we need human-centric learning

Increasing demands for results

Organizations and educational institutions are hyper-focused on impacts and outcomes from learning programs. Leaders and educators face increasing pressure to demonstrate results and L&D ROI. The need for comprehensive, real-time data, dashboards, and insights about learning program effectiveness become table stakes.

Learning is always-on

The way we learn has changed. There’s more need for mobile learning, micro learning, and social learning. From the classroom to the conference room to the living room, we must deliver effective courses and training programs that meet the expectations of the modern learner.

Remote and hybrid learning

The pandemic accelerated the need for remote work, hybrid learning, and employee training - significantly and permanently changing the workflow for teachers, trainers, leaders, and employees. We live in a remote-first world where scalability, adaptability, effectiveness, and engagement are absolute musts to deliver learning any time, any where, to any one.
