Microlearning: NOT A Silver Bullet

By JD Dillon

Just like every other potential L&D tactic, Microlearning must be effectively implemented as part of a larger learning ecosystem. But what role does microlearning play? How can it augment – or potentially replace – your other tactics? JD and Brent will discuss the idea of microlearning as not a stand-alone concept but rather part of your larger learning strategy.

Microlearning for the Workplace

By Shannon Tipton

The humans in your organization need help now. How are you supporting them? “Microlearning on the GO” gives you the tools to develop a microlearning content plan to address those “just-in-time” learning moments.

Easily defined, microlearning is: Short bursts of focused “right-sized” content to help people achieve a specific outcome. More than just creating micro videos, microlearning is about solving problems that get in the way of employee success. People in the modern workplace require timeliness and relevance. The speed at which one can arrive at the required answer or solution using a performance support tool is key to the microlearning appeal.

Embracing Microlearning in Your Learning Ecosystem

By Carla Torgerson

Microlearning – defined as providing learning material in short bursts that anyone can access any time – is being touted as the “next big thing.” We all have personal experiences of learning in this way, but how do we apply it to corporate learning? In this practical program, we look at what microlearning is, guidance for creating your own microlearning resources, and how to use MILE, the MIcroLEarning Design Model© to develop a microlearning program.

Going Beyond Microlearning to Work Results

By Ray Jimenez

Microlearning is about work results. Sadly, many think of Microlearning as content production. To make Microlearning work, we need to stop thinking of learning, but focus on how to help workers fix, solve and improve work issues. Learning is only a consequence, not the goal. Start with work situations, find answers and solutions from others and resources. Help learners to do it, just do it.
