The Top 6 Best Practices for Microlearning to Take Off!

Micro-learning is identified as the silver bullet for the tough to engage and distracted modern learner and is also the frequently used buzzword in the learning/training industry. But keep in mind microlearning is not a replacement for a classroom or a formal e-learning course. Also, it is n ot something limited by time but rather a supplement to any formal learning process.

Microlearning is a short, focused, and contextual learning method that reinforces relevant concepts on demand. And designing microlearning must involve critical instructional elements such as objectives, assessments, and feedback to meet adaptive and deeper learning.

We have consolidated 6 best practices for designing any microlearning to reap the maximum.

1.  Access the use-case

Understand the learners’ unique demands, since each has their own knowledge gaps. Also, provide a library of micro-learning resources in a structured and searchable form, that allows the learners to navigate and access their on-demand content.

2. Versatility

Making the learning convenient improves the participation rate. Hence the developer should make sure the micro-learning content has all the navigation and menu icons. Besides, they must be legible and responsive to every learner screen sizes, since you don’t know, when they will be hit with inspiration and at that time, what device they will be holding.

3.  No clutter

Based on the learning objective, know what is nice to have and what is must to have and remove all irrelevant content for keeping the course length short, between 1 to 3 minutes. Further, including assessments can help track learners’ progress, identify the area of improvement, and make sure the targeted ROI has been achieved.

4.  Wise media usage

Designing the micro-learning materials using a mix of appropriate learning elements such as audio, video, and text along with the right graphics, creates a diverse micro-learning menu that directs learners towards the learning goal and adds value to the learning/training process.

5.  Learner-friendly approaches

Delivery is as much important as the micro-learning production process. Analyzing the learner competency, assessments, and field demand can assist in delivering personalized content. Further, making sure to deliver the content at scheduled intervals can maximize the knowledge transfer process.

6.  Art of engagements

Even the dull and dry topics/concepts involving gamification with badges, scores, and leader boards boost learners’ participation, engagement, and knowledge retention. Also, the offline availability of the micro-learning courses can encourage the learners to complete them at their time of convenience.
