Brand Story

It all started with a young boy named Graham who had a tremendous passion for education while he was growing up in the UK. Graham always enjoyed the learning experience at school and he even thought of choosing teaching as a career.

Later on that became true when he moved to the US, got a MS degree in computer science from the University of Texas, and was later invited to be a senior lecturer. He gained a good reputation for his teaching skills at UTD, and was soon getting offers to teach the same materials at local high-tech companies.

Graham built his first company based on his teaching experience and ventured on to corporate training and software products. He founded two more companies related to computer tech and training, but his passion has always remained teaching and education. Even though he spent most of his career in the enterprise software space, there has always been a significant educational component, whether it was teaching at University, writing books, teaching in corporations, or explaining complex topics at seminars.

That's why in 2005 he decided to go back to his teaching roots by starting a new company called EDU 2.0. The company focused on something that was very close to Graham's heart, which was improving the education system through an innovative e-learning platform that made teaching and learning easier.

EDU 2.0 had a fast growth, reaching 1 million users in the first 5 years, and becoming the LMS with the most beautiful and user friendly interface on the market.

In 2014 EDU 2.0 rebranded to NEO and together with its sister company MATRIX are now under the umbrella of CYPHER LEARNING.

Graham's passion for education and innovation has become the essence of who we are as a company and motivates us as a team to offer the best solution on the market.
