Reports from learning specialists suggest they get excited because their microlearning lessons are shorter, faster, and easier to produce. However, the reports say they are “nice since they are short,” but workers don’t use it to impact work. What is causing this problem, and why is microlearning liked so much even if it “does not impact work?”

With a significant number of people jumping on the microlearning bandwagon, many L&D professionals cut, trim, splice, and space the delivery of micro-content. However, many of them are simply the same content trimmed down. Instead of an entire 30-minute video, they now have 20 one-minute videos. This approach is symptomatic of a problem where application of microlearning proceeds without rethinking how it truly impacts performance results.

In this webinar, you will learn how to add depth, relevance, and impact using your microlearning.

Topics will cover:

  • How to avoid irrelevant and poorly utilized microlearning lessons
  • Why your microlearning may be perceived as shallow and low-impact
  • How to move the microlearning approach to aim for work impact
  • How to collect demands from workers for microlearning lessons, and how to deliver and track results
  • What metrics to set up, how to implement them, and how to follow up to get results
