Insightful Microlearning Resources
Sounds simple, but let’s break it down. There are three major considerations that go into designing meaningful and impactful microlearning:
Chunking content into self-contained nuggets
As companies begin to consider or implement sales This involves more that dividing the content into sections that are about 3-5 minutes long. For each content nugget to be truly effective, it’s important that it:
- Stands its own ground, i.e., delivers a complete idea.
- Is directly relevant to the topic, without any frills attached.
- Remains aligned to the learning objective(s).
- Serves as a tool that supports in-time and on demand learning in the workflow.
Appropriate learning modalities for each content type
This involves determining whether the nugget is a fact, concept, process, procedure or principle; and then using the right learning modality to best present it.
Defining a roll-out path that is non-linear, but at the same time incremental
This happens to be the most ignored aspect of microlearning. There are two primary considerations at play here:
- Determining the sequence and intervals at which microlearning nuggets should be rolled for maximum learner engagement and retention.
- Defining learner groups, and associated learning paths that are most relevant for each group.
Like you can see, designing a microlearning solution is all about intensive planning to create a simple output – in other words making learning learner-centric, and not content-centric.
