Since the industrial revolution, attention spans have progressively come down. Today, a one-minute video is too long for the smartphone-bred generation. There is even a trend of 5-10 second videos.
So, microlearning serves two purposes.
- You can use it to overcome the challenge of short attention spans.
- You can deliver the microlearning nuggets as just-in-time learning.
Split your training to the smallest possible nuggets. Make them searchable from your employee’s smartphone. This way, the learning program you created doubles up as a job aid and if that is not guaranteed ROI, then nothing is!
