What is microlearning?

Microlearning is little nuggets of salient information distributed often and customized to the learner. It’s NOT one-minute training videos, or short pieces of content in an LMS. It’s digestible chunks of everything your employees need to know, delivered based on what your employees current knowledge levels are, to build long-term knowledge retention.

Simply put, microlearning is a technique for delivering content in small, focused, bite-sized chunks (from three to five minutes) several times per week, or even daily.

Why it works

Brain science tells us we can only absorb four to five pieces of information into short-term memory at any given time. So, by breaking it into short chunks and delivering it continuously over time, learnings are easier to digest, understand, and apply. It’s that simple!
