About Us

Sheldon Murphy founded Solid State Learning in 1999. His experience with web technologies reaches back to the infancy of the web.
As a former employee of a Fortune 500 company, he played a key role in building the successful e-learning program from the ground up. During this journey, he found many disconnects between technology vendors and the goals of training departments. Sheldon founded Solid State Learning to help bridge the gaps between technology and the learner experience, and to make life easier for training administrators.
Today, we are helping organizations to realize the full potential of e-learning, with solutions that have been tried and tested in the real world. Our reasonably-priced products and services have been extended to government, non-profits, and mid-sized companies for incredible value.


Solid State Learning believes in the following core values:

  • Integrity in everything we do.
  • User-Centered Design and Testing throughout the entire process.
  • Prompt and courteous customer support.


We are active in the e-learning community in the Pittsburgh region. Annually, we sponsor the ASTD Pittsburgh E-learning Expo, and hold monthly meetings of the Pittsburgh E-Learning Society.
