Showcase training offerings

Experience flexibility like never before with CYPHER's versatile display options for your training offerings: the graphical catalog or a convenient calendar format.

Course catalog

Elevate your courses with our comprehensive catalog, each course featuring an in-depth overview tab. Customize the catalog by structuring categories and courses to your preference – whether flat, hierarchical, or graphical. Tailor further by arranging them alphabetically or in a custom order. You have the option to display concise descriptions on item tiles, reveal sections within modules, and even showcase prices. Organize efficiently and indicate time zones for a seamless browsing experience.

Calendar view

Seamlessly switch between weekly, yearly, or agenda views, to easily view specific events like web conferences and assignment deadlines.
