Fueled by a wider adoption of mobile learning, microlearning based training has gained momentum in the last 2 years. In this article, I outline why you should adopt a combination of microlearning and mobile learning in 2018.
At EI Design, we have been offering learning and performance support solutions for over 16 years now. During these years, we have seen the evolution of formal training from predominantly Instructor Led Training (ILT) to online training or eLearning.
Over the last 5 years, we have seen a steady increase in the integration of mobile learning as an integral part of most organizations’ training deliveries.
Alongside, we saw the introduction of microlearning.
It is interesting to note that while the demand for short, focused training has always been there for learners, the increased mobile learning adoption has facilitated the usage of microlearning as a mainstream training strategy.
In this article, I outline why you should adopt the combination of microlearning and mobile learning/mLearning in 2018.
Before I outline how you can leverage on the combination of microlearning and mobile learning/mLearning in 2018, let me recap a few highlights and benefits of both.
Mobile learning is learning “on the go”. It is a learner-centric approach, and its significant highlights are as follows:

The demand for microlearning-based training has always been there. Although it is in the last few years, L&D teams have seen its value, particularly in:
In the first avatar, microlearning was designed to support formal training, but with the wider adoption of mobile learning, it is now being used for:
Microlearning and mobile learning/mLearning make great companions, and you can use them to multiply the impact of your training delivery.
I hope this article gives you the required insights on why you should adopt the combination of microlearning and mobile learning/mLearning in 2018. With this combination, you will be able to see more engaged learners and higher impact training. If you have any queries, do contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
