Tons of administrative features that enable you to do all the things you need

Key administrative features for the administrator and other stakeholders like learners, teachers, educators, trainers, L&D professionals, etc.

For administrators

Admin menu

With CYPHER, It's easy for one person to administer a large organization’s teaching or training initiatives. Use the admin menu to easily navigate to different tools and areas on the platform. All options are available via a convenient pop-out menu, with full online help for each feature.


There is a wide range of account types: super admin, administrator, partial administrator, instructor, learner, monitor, teaching assistant, mentor, and manager. You can create accounts using a form, bulk import, self-enrollment, email invitations, LDAP synchronization, or API.

Networking sites

Connect multiple portals into a network and easily administer them using a single admin account. This is a great way to boost collaboration and share resources at a network level.


Create organizations that represent departments in a company or school. Each user can be associated with an organization, which allows you to filter the content and options accessible for each group.


Each organization gets its own portal. The administrator is responsible for its customization, including its URL, color scheme, terminology, portal slides and portal pages. Each organization can have its own portal, set of users, and its own course catalog. You can hide organizations from each other and administer all of them with a single account.

Setting policies

Configure a wide range of site-wide policies and set policies for each account type. Define which features are enabled and what information different users can access. Create policy documents that can be used as cookie or privacy policies that users must accept before using the platform. You can configure  whether picture moderation is required and more.

Monitor communications

Be informed about what's happening in your company and what learners are doing by browsing through all learner communications, including messages, forum postings, and chat messages. Receive daily reports of any potentially offensive communications.

For other stakeholders

Course catalog

You can configure your course catalog to be viewed as a flat list, a hierarchy, or graphically. You can also specify whether categories and courses are ordered alphabetically or in an order that you specify.

Resources catalog

Store, manage, and share any type of resource across the entire company, network, or school. Use resources such as certificates, course templates, rubrics, files, SCORM packages, and competencies to enrich your course content. You can place a resource in your private library, the library shared by everyone in your company/academic institution or the network library. 


You can configure the dashboard with settings such as customizing the messages that are displayed for trainers/instructors that aren’t training/teaching any courses and learners/students that aren’t enrolled in any courses.


You can create reports of data such as learner/student/employee activity, missing assignments, course status, completion status and resource usage.

Trash can

Deleted items such as courses, modules, and resources can be recovered from the trash can. You have up to 30 days to restore items before they are permanently deleted.
