The Microlearning Trend
Whether we call it “microlearning,” “learning bursts,” or “bite-size learning,” there is a dramatic shift in today's world of training and development. Corporations are moving away from day-long training events in an effort to maximize real learning while minimizing time spent devoted to training.
Experts say that this approach aligns with research showing that we learn better when engaged in short, focused sessions. Corporations and other organizations find this technology-assisted microlearning appealing because it can, in part, replace costly off-site training and deliver just-in-time knowledge and skills when they are most needed.
