Today with the help of smartphones, customers are getting perspicacious by day with an infinite reservoir of knowledge on their fingertips. This increased client knowledge creates a need for the employees to stay updated and fluent in all products and services. Microlearning is delivering tiny bursts of learning material that helps train the workforce faster in a fun and engaging way. Higher completion rates, learner engagement, peer learning and improved workforce performance have made microlearning a popular necessity in organisations.
Micro learning is the breaking down of information into topical, bite-sized chunks. By interacting with these highly-targeted learning bursts, lessons become much easier to digest and the likelihood of knowledge retention is increased. Microlearning courses are easier to develop, update and distribute compared to traditional eLearning courses and completion rates are dramatically higher. Furthermore, the compact nature of microlessons means microlearning is a great enabler of other techniques such as Peer Learning, Spaced Repetition and Just-in-Time training.
