A lot of organizations are now seeing Microlearning as an important tool for both Formal and Informal Learning. Due to the diminishing attention spans of employees, organizations find it tough to engage them in learning. Hence, the usage of Microlearning in the workplace has now come to the forefront.
As the name suggests, Microlearning is a short, focused training. It is normally 2-5 mins in run length (normally not exceeding 7 mins). Although it is short, it is designed to meet specific learning outcomes. It is characteristic of multi-device support, rich media formats, and is action-oriented (wherein learners learn, practice, or apply for the job).
Microlearning in the workplace can be used for formal training, to supplement formal training, and as Performance Support Tools (PSTs) or job aids. The following infographic shows the various types of Microlearning formats that can used at the workplace.
I hope this infographic gave you an idea of how you can use Microlearning in the workplace to enhance your training. Once you implement this strategy in your organization, either for Formal or Informal Learning, you will see an improvement in the way your employees learn during training.
