Introducing to Microlearning

As the name suggests, micro learning is presenting the learning material in a bit-sized exercise or short nuggets. The micro-learning modules are short, with 3 – 5 minutes long, and the method is highly suitable for the skill-based training purpose. The modules contain well-defined, focused content designed to achieve specific target objectives in the short time possible.
