The benefits of microlearning have been well-documented, and it’s proven to be a smart approach to teaching complicated information or skill sets that need to be broken down into smaller, more digestible sections. It has also proven to increase memory and retention for leaners, and it gives organizations a cost-effective, scalable, and easily updated learning experience.
But while the advantages of microlearning appeal to businesses, it can be hard for L&D teams to know exactly how to apply it to their own programs. Here are some of the best scenarios to use microlearning to help create change and drive your business goals.
Custom learning solutions give organizations the flexibility to create the right kind of content and learning experience to address their unique training needs. Specifically, microlearning modules can be a way to enable more learner connection with specific topics in shorter time frames, helping to drive results. Microlearning won’t be the right fit for every learning objective, but it’s a very useful tool when applied effectively.
And while microlearning can often be delivered as part of an eLearning course or through an app, there are plenty of offline ways to use this delivery method for even more flexibility. In fact, even old fashioned vocabulary or multiplication flashcards could be considered examples of microlearning.
