Better prepare students for the real world
In college, many students’ grades depend on three or four big tests. Not only does that induce tons of stress around exam time, but it also could cause students to put off learning until the last minute. Cramming isn’t the same as learning. With competency mapping and automatic quiz creation, cramming prevention is easier than ever.

Preparing tomorrow’s leaders with innovation and engagement
The role of online learning in higher ed is undeniable. More and more colleges and universities offer online courses and degree programs – or incorporate hybrid learning with in-person instruction augmented by online coursework. And then there’s an entire marketplace of online-only institutions attracting undergraduate and graduate students seeking a fully remote program digitally optimized from the ground up. The list of available options for students is endless. This rise in popularity is placing increasing pressure on schools to provide a learning experience that rivals or exceeds that of in-classroom programs – which means the ability to create and deliver inspiring, innovative content and the chance for students to interact directly with their professors and classmates.
As a result, colleges and universities are revisiting their online learning offerings and the underlying technology. They want a modern learning platform that delivers a superior learning experience and meets student’s needs and expectations. An LMS for higher education designed for personalized, competency-based learning experiences at scale that leverages innovations like AI and gamification and empowers professors to design engaging coursework that makes students want to learn. Most importantly, they want a platform that lets them effectively prepare students to compete and excel in a post-graduate world. That platform is CYPHER Learning.
A recent survey of university chief online officers (COOs) revealed almost 99% expect an increase in online learning over the next three years.

Traditional way vs. CYPHER’s approach
Did you know only 43% of faculty give a top grade to higher ed online learning (The New York Times)? That’s because faculty and students are plagued with antiquated learning platforms that assume every student learns the same way. They don’t give educators the tools and flexibility to create and deliver courses and content that map to what each individual student needs or engage them in ways that motivate and inspire. CYPHER is revolutionizing the way higher education institutions build and administer higher education curriculums and courses. Thousands of colleges and universities worldwide use the CYPHER platform to empower their staff to deliver effective and inspiring competency-based courses with personalized learning paths, engaging content and advanced analytics – all geared toward helping students achieve mastery-level proficiency of their degree programs and ready themselves for the future.
