Microlearning – how to make a long story short

As far as elearning trends go, microlearning is one of the biggest for 2017. The term describes the use of elearning in small, bite-sized, managed ways. Essentially the exact same practice as a normal length course but on a different (smaller) scale. Reducing the course size into a five-minute-long, quick-hit, training session – separating what you NEED to know, from what is NICE to know. Is the information critical to the learner? Will the learners ever need to know this in the job role? If the learner doesn’t know this, what would be the impact? – simple.

Minutes – 5 minutes’ maximum, design for ease.

Content – need to know, not nice to know.

Curriculum – is modular and straight to the point.
