Applying microlearning principles to traditional eLearning

principle

Learning is delivered in bite-sized pieces

section1-iconsv2

what you can do

double-course

Consider shortening your SCORM content to create a suite of even shorter courses.

double-course

principle

Learners have immediate access to content anywhere, any time

what you can do

If you can’t implement a modern Learning Experience Platform...

...you can still design responsive content that works and looks great on mobile as well as desktop.

responsive

principle

Content is delivered via various media – courses should only be used where necessary

section3-icons

what you can do

Videos, infographics, knowledge checks, sounds clips can all be used and reused as independent microcontent for the modern learner.

assets2

principle

Assets are created using a single, specific learning outcome as their raison d'etre

section4-icons

what you can do

No more content for the sake of content. Choose one single outcome - push or pull one piece of information that imparts or checks that knowledge.

With a laser-focused, targeted method, learning outcomes will be met faster – with less resources.

principle

Spaced practice is used to counteract the forgetting curve

section5-icons

what you can do

Learning should never be ‘one and done’. Deliver post-course follow-up assets reinforcing key points over time. Given a chance, good instructional design will utilise this technique.

principle

Personalised or adaptive learning will increase engagement

what you can do

Utilise AI and smart algorithms for adaptive learning programmes. Automatically deploy personalised bite-sized learning resources, or let the learner choose from what’s most relevant.
