Cypher Learning Introduces AI-Powered Copilot to Accomplish 80% of Gamified Course Creation in Minutes

Learning platform company Cypher Learning has announced its release of Copilot, which uses a customized AI strategy to do 80% of the work to create complete, gamified courses and competency aligned assessments in mere minutes, according to a release. This frees up educators' time to modify and provide specific learning resources based on student needs.

That final 20% of educator involvement, according to the company's website, involves "human intelligence, validation of content and the overall learning experience. After all, it's called Copilot, not auto pilot."

Copilot uses a variety of AI technologies, including (but not restricted to) ChatGPT, and can create courses for K–12, higher education, industry instruction, and skills development, Cypher Learning said.

Calling Copilot a "world first," the release noted the following features:

  • Courses can be created in over 50 languages. Educators can build a whole course or just part of it and can "modify it to your heart's content," said CEO Graham Glass.
  • Rubric creation, question banks, quizzes, games, and assessments can all be created to target and evaluate student learning. Students can earn badges and points as they complete modules.
  • Institutions can quickly create their own competencies and courses that align with them down to the question level.
  • Courses can be gamified to increase student engagement, learning, and retention.
  • Users do not need to be trained in AI to use the platform.

In a video on the Cypher Learning website, Glass explains the company's philosophy on the use of AI: "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."
