Microlearning is hot in L&D circles but what exactly is microlearning? Is it smaller than a breadbox? Bigger than a molecule? There are several ways to develop effective and meaningful microlearning and there are hundreds of ways to develop ineffective, low impact microlearning. It’s critical to maximize microlearning so you can achieve your desired results. We’ll define six types of microlearning, provide examples and discus the right use and approach to each type.

  • • Understand the different types of microlearning
  • • Match the right learning need to the right type of microlearning
  • • Learn specific design techniques to make microlearning effective
