Microlearning seems to be the buzz word in corporate L&D these days and hence, it is understandable how most people seem to think of it as a new concept. However, the idea of using short and focused eLearning nuggets and weaving them within an online learning curriculum has been around for a long time now. But what exactly is the reason for its sudden popularity? It’s because of the mobile learning revolution. And microlearning became the missing piece of the puzzle to build an effective mobile learning experience.
The growing need for anytime, anywhere learning demanded online training programs to be designed to suit mobile Learning. Today, mLearning functions not just as an extension of regular eLearning programs but has become a type of online training all by itself. Under the popular Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD) policy, organizations are opting for fully responsive eLearning courses designed specifically for smartphones and tablets.
The whole point of making learning device-agnostic and bite-sized is to give learners quick access to precise information on the field, where rummaging through hour-long eLearning courses is not an ideal solution. Using microlearning courses which are mobile-compatible, gives a succinct solution to the problem.
