What is microlearning, and how could such small learning bites make a big impact to my workers, and my organisation?
That was just one of many questions our experts Claire Lavin and Kate Bos discussed in our 30-minute webinar on - you guessed it, Everything You Need to Learn About Microlearning.
While microlearning is the buzzword du jour, it's so much more than that.
L&D and HR departments have to deliver quality training in as little time as possible, and as technology evolves, it's making greater opportunities for us to do that.
So besides the benefits for L&D and HR teams, what are the benefits of microlearning for modern learners? Modern learners are mobile-savvy, have shorter attention spans and want easy access to learning on the web. Think about heated debates at dinner parties that can be solved just be Googling the answer on your phone. If we do this daily, why wouldn't we offer similar style training for greater impact?
Microlearning is the perfect method to deliver learning quickly and effectively.
It's perfect for refresher training courses where you need people to brush-up their knowledge on a topic you might've covered a while ago. Claire covers when microlearning isn't appropriate for learning and development initiatives - such as complex skill building, or when it's aimed towards novice learners.
Some other concepts Claire & Kate cover off include:
- Characteristics of microlearning
- The benefits of microlearning
- The way microlearning can be delivered (contact us to view a demo of our latest microlearning course)
- Why microlearning works for compliance topics

So wait - what happens if we're still using traditional learning methods to train and up-skill our team?
We hear ya, there are plenty of people who are implementing traditional face-to-face training, who are looking at eLearning as an alternative. Our latest whitepaper, eLearning for Your Business helps walk you through what, why and how you can revolutionise your internal training with eLearning, and why it's important to understand learning trends like microlearning to determine if it fits with your organisation.
