Understanding Microlearning – What it is and What it Isn’t

Building Efficiencies One Module at a Time

September 23, 2021
1 Hour (45 mins + 15 mins of Q&A)

What is microlearning? Is it appropriate for every training situation? What should anchor the design?

These are not the only questions you might face as you champion to include microlearning in your training strategy. There will be others, for example:

Does microlearning mean only video? 

Is it effective only as performance support?

What is the ideal duration of a microlearning course?

Though there are a lot of misconceptions around microlearning, organizations choosing to ignore microlearning do so at the risk of rolling out training that’s not in sync with learner preferences. 

Why is that?

Microlearning with its short (micro) duration and compatibility with different formats makes it ideal for learners who are used to browsing online for short, instant solutions. It facilitates ‘pull’ learning as it is focused (on a single learning objective) and mobile-friendly and can be used when you want learners to refresh their skill or learn during their downtime. It is also a great tool to beat the forgetting curve, as microlearning assets can be ‘pushed’ to learners at regular intervals.

However, there’s nothing ‘micro’ about its design and development. And that is what this webinar is all about. The webinar will discuss: 

  • What microlearning is and isn’t
  • Types of microlearning assets
  • Microlearning as standalone training
  • Streamlined microlearning development roadmap
  • Discovery questions to be asked at each stage of development
  • Microlearning in action – example roadmaps
