What is Microlearning?

In the age of short-form content and how it has shaped consumption, microlearning has become a popular approach to training and development that everyone wants to dip their toes in. 

Training delivered using microlearning usually spans a short duration of 3-6 minutes and can stretch up to 10 minutes in some cases. What sets microlearning apart is that each module tackles one learning objective and topic at a time, serving only the essential information in quick nuggets. Thus, the trick to effective microlearning is grabbing and holding learners’ attention. 

Microlearning can be accessed on any device, and due to its single-target learning objectives, each module can be taken independently. For this reason, microlearning is an excellent solution for quick revisions, recaps, summaries, and just-in-time on-the-job learning. 

Key Considerations while Engaging a Microlearning Vendor

When engaging a microlearning partner, the vendor’s experience will determine the quality of their solutions, services, and deliverables. Typically, a company with a team of industry experts who have years of learning and talent development experience will be better equipped to address your needs. You will also need to consider the vendor’s experience working with the specific sector you belong to.  

The specific tools a vendor uses influences the ideation and development process. Vendors that use the latest applications and programs are able to come up with interactive microlearning solutions and execute them within reasonable timeframes.  

It is also necessary to consider how collaborative the eLearning vendor is. Microlearning course creation is a multi-phased process and requires consistent back and forth between the client and service provider. A collaborative vendor will keep you updated and be quick to incorporate feedback, changes, and suggestions. 

Lastly, it is wise to engage a microlearning vendor that can provide post-delivery support if the need arises. In other words, a client-centric service provider. This way, businesses can ensure that their eLearning solutions don’t end up becoming unusable when running into a hitch.

Benefits of Microlearning

Effective microlearning modules incorporate appropriate learning strategies and methodologies. These tools fulfill many different purposes, from capturing learners’ attention to making learning more coherent and understandable. With these tools and strategies, microlearning becomes more engaging and fosters effective knowledge retention as a result. 

Microlearning is a great way to fine-tune the sequence of learning to make it cohesive and well-structured. It optimizes the learning sequence in a way that introduces information at the right moments and builds on learners’ existing knowledge. Through this, learning becomes more comprehensible, making it easier for learners to retain and apply it effectively. 

Microlearning allows businesses to tailor make quick learning solutions to target specific needs. Due to the singular nature of microlearning modules, learners can take each module on a need-basis without having to spend extra time and effort on information they already know or do not need. 

By breaking information down into bite-sized nuggets, microlearning reduces the cognitive load of learning. By giving learners information in digestible chunks, microlearning optimizes retention. 

Microlearning eliminates the need for extensive classroom training modules by leveraging technology to develop highly efficient eLearning experiences. It trims away all the fluff from the training process and provides learners with focused learning programs that develop knowledge and skills faster than traditional training. It also creates repeatable and reusable learning assets. This makes revision easier and facilitates the repurposing of training material in the future.
