Skills development is not new, so what’s the big deal?

The concept of skills development has been around for decades. So, why is it such a hot topic…again? Traditional learning platforms continue to use self-assessment methods for determining skill mastery. This leads to misalignment with actual skill mastery because the learner doesn’t know what they don’t know. Learning content that is not tailored to individual needs results in disengaged learners and a lackluster experience. No one has been able to deliver on the promise of skills development and do it right. Until now. CYPHER Learning has the magic modern learners expect.

How CYPHER modernizes skills development

If businesses want to see some serious skills growth, they can't just stop at the hiring stage. Personalized skills development must be a key part of their talent management strategy. Let's not forget about schools and universities, too! If they want their students to really shine and reach their full potential, they need to go beyond just teaching and make personalized skills development a core part of their educational strategy. CYPHER brings a new school approach to an old school model making personalized skills development a reality.

Competency-based learning

CYPHER goes beyond traditional ad-hoc and topic based skills development with competency-based learning that delivers customized experiences.

CYPHER delivers personalization, precision, and proactive recommendations at scale. There is clarity of level mastery for each competency, recommendations based on what is needed to master remaining competencies, and multiple assessments of each competency for reliable results.

Competency-based learning

Insightful assessments

Single exams on broad topics disguise gaps. Choose from over 16 assessment types, including question banks, essays, gamification, and self-evaluation for learners to demonstrate proficiency and competency.

Trainers and teachers can better assess the learner’s needs and modify instruction or eliminate skill gaps as needed.


Keep the human connection

CYPHER is the only platform to provide a Universal Translator for real-time communications such as messages and posting. Connect with others who share the same learning goals. This brings communities closer together - no matter where they are - to help build new skills - no matter what they are.

Feel close to your learning community even when physically apart with wikis, forums, chat, the Green Dot activity indicator, and scrolling real-time widgets.

Human connection
