SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- CYPHER LEARNING, a leading provider of learning platforms for schools, universities and organizations around the world, today announced the release of several new features for its suite of learning management systems (LMSs). These additions are designed to make e-learning content even easier to track and consume — increasing learner engagement and retention, and optimizing the learning experience.
Relied on by millions of users across more than 20,000 organizations, CYPHER LEARNING is the only company offering platforms in all major e-learning sectors: with NEO LMS for schools and universities, MATRIX LMS for businesses and INDIE LMS for entrepreneurs. The award-winning platforms — recognized for their intuitive interface and user-friendly experience — support more than 40 languages.
Newly released features include:
New graphical dashboards for administrators, teachers and students. The dashboards prominently display the most important information for each user type. For example, teachers can instantly see a news widget so they won't miss important class announcements. The dashboards can be customized with welcome banners to give students important information about the course, such as special announcements and instructions. Graphical widgets also make it easy to visualize site and course activity. Users can easily see relevant statistics related to students, grades, course mastery and more — helping them identify, at a glance, who's on track and who may need assistance.
Dark mode, which allows all users to switch between "light" and "dark" as the main design style. This addition helps users reduce eye strain, enabling them to use a low-light setting and limit the amount of blue light emitted from their devices whenever they engage with the platforms.
Site-wide surveys, enabling administrators to create surveys for a targeted user audience and deploy them to those groups. With this capability, organizations and academic institutions can send surveys that work outside of the scope of a course and gather useful information and feedback from learners and instructors.
In addition, other recently released features for CYPHER LEARNING products include a new learner course dashboard, hotspot question type for assessments and integration with the popular payment service YooMoney.
