When to Choose Microlearning

when to choose microlearning

Articulate released a new microlearning option for Rise360 recently. If you haven’t had a chance to play with it, it is sort of a light version of a Rise module without a menu. This new format lends itself really well to bite-sized learning modules with focused content.

It is important to use the right solution for learning needs. While this new Rise360 feature is really fun to play with, microlearning  isn’t a one size fits all approach to training. In fact, there are a lot of training outcomes that do not lend themselves to small, focused, and targeted learning experiences. The allure of microlearning for a lot of project teams is that it is easily accessible to the busy professional. Professional development that happens in-between meetings, or when a learner needs a brain break, is appealing. However, not all training initiatives should be designed with microlearning.  

To help you decide if microlearning is the right approach for your training, we created a decision tree. The Microlearning Decision Tree aims to cover the most common scenarios to aid in quickly deciding if microlearning can or should be built into a training program. Feel free to download this microlearning decision tree or share it with your team.
