CYPHER Learning delivers industry first AI-powered Copilot
Mon, 3rd Jul 2023

CYPHER Learning launches CYPHER Copilot, designed to accelerate education course delivery and reduce the burden on teachers and trainers. 

Guided by AI, CYPHER Copilot empowers users to create comprehensive, engaging and gamified courses and assessments that would typically take days, weeks or even months in minutes.

As courses and assessments are automatically aligned to specific competencies, CYPHER says everyone in the learning process benefits from a fine-grained approach that supports personalized learning. 

CYPHER highlights that The Copilot removes 80% of the work required to design and curate courses, competencies and assessments, meaning teachers and trainers can focus on the final 20%. 

Key features include:

  • Accelerated curriculum and course design, including course outlines, descriptions and content in over 50 languages. Copilot enables the generation of an entire course in 20-30 minutes, allowing the selection of materials that reflect individuals' styles and objectives in a fast and cost-effective way.
  • Targeted assessments to track learner progression and identify gaps, including rubric creation and question banks. Copilot helps trainers and educators automatically generate detailed quizzes, games, and assessments to help evaluate learner progress. 
  • Alignment with a full competency-based learning model. Copilot enables organizations to generate competencies and create courses that align with those competencies, along with question banks and assignments that automatically align with those competencies.
  • Embedded gamification to increase learner engagement. Copilot gamifies courses to bring development to life and inspire learners, improving information retention and understanding to deliver better outcomes. 

Graham Glass, CEO of CYPHER Learning, says: "Competency based learning unlocks the potential for personalized learning, the holy Grail of skills development. Yet until now, it's just not been possible at scale." 

"Building and designing development courses is an essential part of any teacher or instructor's job, but it is also very time-consuming. Yet demand for courses is steadily increasing."

"According to Gartner, 33% of the skills needed three years ago are already irrelevant. At the same time, global teacher shortages are bringing educational institutions to their knees. 

"Something's got to give. Teachers and instructors do not have the resources to keep up with demand."

"Copilot harnesses the power of AI to take care of the mundane aspects of course creation while still curating dynamic, gamified, multimedia, engaging courses that inspire a passion for lifelong learning." 

"The Copilot is simple and intuitive to use, giving teachers and instructors an AI guided smart assistant who can cut their workload by 80% or more." 

"This accelerates course development, allowing teachers and trainers to focus on the final 20% to polish and refine, ensuring that new courses can be added to stay ahead of the curve." 

"This helps to ensure that human talent is focused where it needs to be, on delivering better outcomes for the learner and the business," says Glass.

In a world-first, CYPHER Copilot is available now through the CYPHER modern learning platform.
