Microlearning is one of the key aspects of FUEL’s approach to online training delivery, because of its effectiveness. Learning things in small doses not only improves knowledge retention, but it’s also more cost effective. These are some of the other reasons why…
Microlearning courses are short – we recommend producing modules of 5 to 7 minutes in length – meaning they do not take staff away from their primary duties for long. They also do not require too much from people’s diminishing attention spans.
Due to the short timeframe, microlearning modules need to be to the point and focused. There is no fluff, just a tidy parcel of concentrated knowledge.
Easy to access
Short lessons allow learners to easily watch the modules wherever they are, in the office, at home or on the road. FUEL Learn is a mobile-responsive LMS.
Microlearning helps learners retain information by limiting the amount which is transferred at one time. Concepts can also be repeated over several modules to help boost long-term retention.
By incorporating elements into e-learning modules such as fun graphics and gamification, your training can become more enjoyable, engaging – even fun!
Microlearning has now evolved to be delivered in a timely way, so that it can occur when the user needs it. This just-in-time approach includes: making it easy for users to access the information when and where they need it; using content formats that include micro video or audio, graphics, and interactive elements; and including rewards.
Visual aesthetics have become more important as learners expect good design to be carried over into the e-learning they engage with. This goes together with the user experience – or UX – which has evolved to concentrate on being intuitive and enjoyable for the learner to use. Scenario-based scripts are also being used to make information contained in modules more relatable and easily understood.
Choosing a cutting-edge LMS such as FUEL Learn, and using our digital content experts to create a professional curriculum, allows your organisation to take advantage of all the benefits of microlearning.
