It’s like sushi!
You know when you order an uramaki and, as soon as you taste it, you feel an explosion of flavors in one bite? Well, the metaphor linking Microlearning to sushi is based on that very feeling! Microlearning, in fact, as we’ll see, consists of creating small packages of varied content that can be enjoyed…in one delicious and memorable bite. 😉🍣
So…let’s eat some sushi together, and find out how Microlearning works.
Every day we’re constantly dealing with Companies that want to innovate their training. Whether it’s a matter of training employees, partners or customers, it is always nice to be able to contribute to the change of an organization’s corporate training – in a modern and digital way. 😉
Wanting to identify a common need – which is present in every project of digital transformation within corporate training – we can certainly find it in the need and willingness of Organizations to rethink their training in “Microlearning” mode.
In short, Microlearning isn’t just a trend, but a real keyword for a concrete and truly modern digital training!
Today, we begin a series of posts aimed at further deepening what Microlearning is and how to create a corporate training that has this much-claimed feature.
Let’s start by saying that there are two ways: a right and a wrong one.🤭😁
The wrong way consists in using the term “Microlearning” just as a “keyword” of the training strategy – merely dividing, for instance, a 3 hours course into many chapters. Wow, amazing, really innovative and effective…NEEEEEEXT!😫
Now let’s move on to the right way of using Microlearning!
1. Equip yourself with a modern, Microlearning-oriented e-learning platform
Creating a course in “microlearning” mode is only the last step. First of all, it is essential to adopt a tool (LMS) which enables the delivery of digital training in this specific mode.
To sum up, your e-learning platform has to allow you to design corporate training in a Microlearning mode. Then, it has to offer specific features so that your Organization’s training has the following characteristics:
- Performance Support
- Spaced Learning
- Contextualized Learning
- “Just in time” Mobile Learning
Indeed, these are the main features of training in “Microlearning” mode (we’ve already talked about it here).
In the following posts, we’ll address this topic again, but – before starting the journey – we first have to do a full check-up of the vehicle we’ll use, therefore a check of the e-learning platform you’re currently using.
See you here next week to see how your vehicle’s check-up was, and to find out if you need to change it with an updated version with all the…stock features! 🚀
