COLUMBIA, Md., Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Global performance improvement solutions provider GP Strategies Corporation announces the release of a new eBook, Seven Best Practices to Create Micro-learning that Leads to Higher Engagement and Productivity.
Micro-learning is exploding in popularity. The workplace continues to evolve and employees are working less only within the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and more synergistically throughout all hours of the day, often on the fly from mobile devices, away from the office.
Micro-learning is defined as chunking learning material into short, rather than longer, modules or courses. As the learning industry shifts to a "resources, not courses" approach, organizations must remember that creating smaller courses does not necessarily mean valuable content is being delivered. Micro-learning needs to be created as part of a comprehensive learning strategy.
This eBook shares insights on advantages of micro-learning based on the following seven best practices for your learning strategy:
- Best Practice #1: Choose one learning objective per chunk or micro-learning module. Click to Tweet
- Best Practice #2: Design micro-learning as a complete learning experience. Click to Tweet
- Best Practice #3: Use a variety of methods to maintain interest across your micro-learning content and package them into longer, more in depth training. Click to Tweet
