Nowadays, we’re used to consuming everything on a palm-sized screen while on the go.
Microlearning leans in to this trend, catering to the needs of teams that are frequently in the field or short on time and want training that is quick, just-in-time, and easy to reference again later.
Ideal for any attention span, microlearning gives learners the information they need to get back on the job in no time.
The length of a training doesn’t always correlate to its efficacy. Microlearning requires specialized instructional design to deliver complete lessons in the most succinct and digestible way.
Whether you need a quick refresher on a process while out on a job or your organization is looking for a more efficient way to get employees trained, microlearning is key. Its fast and engaging lessons can be packaged in various styles tailored to any situation.
When employees have the materials they need to do their job right every time, they experience greater job satisfaction. Improve your retention rates by empowering your employees with easy and fun microlearning tools packed with the knowledge they need to thrive.
On-Demand Lessons at the Ready
Since microlearning is typically delivered in a print or digital format, it’s reusable. Unlike classroom learning, where people must be present at a certain time and try to remember what they learned later, microlearning can be available to reference at the exact moment it’s needed.

Microlearning must focus on one very specific topic to be successful. Because of this, microlearning modules are usually pieces of a larger blended learning strategy. Ask yourself these questions to decide if microlearning makes sense for your needs:
How do you plan to use microlearning?
Do your employees or learners have access to mobile connected devices?
Do you have processes that can be broken down into short how-to pieces?
Do you have a need for on-demand, repeatable trainings?
Do you have the right platform(s) to house this content?
Will your team be able to easily access this material?
