A lot has been said about the challenge of dwindling attention spans. In fact, a recent study by Microsoft pegs the human attention span at 8 seconds in contrast to a goldfish whose attention span stands at 9 seconds.
While I don’t necessarily buy the data of this report, the fact is that we all need to multi-task, we live in a world of distractions, and we have a finite attention span. Alongside high pressure at work (often with long hours that compete with our personal time), we need to find time and do justice to training.
In the last 2–3 years, Microlearning has emerged as an effective approach that L&D teams can use to address some of these challenges. Today, you are spoilt for choice on various types of Microlearning that you can use for both Formal and Informal Trainings.
