[Infographic] The Value of Micro Learning in a Digital World
While it is hardly a new concept, micro learning is a valuable tool whose popularity is growing in the digital world. It describes the process of building successful behaviors through small, focused steps with each segment lasting no longer than 3 to 5 minutes. These bite-sized learning nuggets can be connected or stand alone, but most importantly they should be paced by the learner and easily accessible on-demand. Micro-learning is focused on specific learning outcomes and can be used as a supplementary element of formal training or part of a blended approach. Popular micro learning platforms include videos, quizzes, games and more recently, Digital Adoption Platforms (DAPs). Using contextual, engaging training, DAP provides mini-training session to users in the moment they need to learn, rather than in additional training.
