CYPHER — US News’ Best LMS for Skills Development

We’re proud to announce that US News & World Report has named CYPHER Learning the Best LMS for Skills Development in 2024! We’re proud to receive this award for the second year in a row. This recognition comes alongside several other industry awards, including three recent badges from Forbes Advisor.

The most recent US News award recognizes CYPHER’s exceptional ability to cultivate skill sets and help businesses (and their employees) take learning to the next level. In a highly competitive job market, it’s more important than ever to upskill, reskill, and cross-skill for any new industry, promotion, or role.

Here’s what this award means for educators, HR professionals, business leaders, product and sales teams, and learning and development experts around the world

Why do industry awards matter?

Industry awards (like the recent ones from Forbes Advisor and US News), confirm that our platform is among the world’s top choices for LMS. But what does this mean for our customers?

  • Industry honors highlight a platform's power and capabilities based on evaluations by trusted, objective third-party reviewers
  • Public recognition provides reassurance to clients and customers that a platform is valuable and worth the investment
  • Industry competition encourages innovation and advancement, which creates more cutting-edge features for users to enjoy

At CYPHER, we’re committed to the quality and effectiveness of our AI-powered learning platform. Industry awards, like those from US News, are simply another way for us to celebrate how personalized learning at scale can truly change the world.

CYPHER is the top LMS for skills training and development

After evaluating several options, US News named its recommended learning platforms based on specific application, design, and functionality. Each platform’s overall technology, ease of use, instructor capabilities, and course updates were among the factors considered.

As the Best LMS for Skills Development in 2024, US News praised CYPHER’s user-friendliness, intelligent AI-powered learning recommendations, and competency-based skills pathways. The award also recognizes the following CYPHER features:

  • Guided learning pathways for users built with intelligent recommendations
  • Customizable learning goals and associated competencies throughout the content
  • Real-time reports for trainers that showcase student mastery of new skills concepts
  • Ability to create and sell online courses and integrate multiple payment options, subscriptions, and tools for offering course bundles
  • Features like automation, mastery tracking, digital profiles, learning groups, learning paths, Q&A forums, and 16+ assessments

The US News Best LMS report also touched on CYPHER’s flexibility across a wide range of applications and use cases:

“Companies typically use CYPHER for employee training and upskilling, while financial and other institutions can also use the platform for compliance training. Instead of relying on traditional ad-hoc and topic-based skills development, CYPHER uses competency-based learning that delivers customized experiences. Instructors are provided with the tools needed to ensure course content is compliant with the skills they want to teach and assess.”
