Do we have shorter attention spans than goldfish?
A recent survey suggests the ability to maintain focus has actually improved over time; it’s just that today’s learners are more selective about where they devote their attention.
This means that—more than ever—it’s essential for eLearning designers to capture learner interest and keep them engaged.
In this webinar, Chris Willis, Senior Product Manager, shared the blended microlearning approach we’re using to build our new off-the-shelf courseware and five best practices for mobile microlearning design. You can watch the recording and download her best practices handout below.
We recently rolled out a new library of mobile-friendly, microlearning safety training. As we designed these courses, we followed our Rockstar Learning Model™ for engaging, effective learning content.
The Rockstar Learning Model
This learning model is based on the steps musicians take to learn new music. It’s broken into 3 parts:
Learn new concepts on your own in a brief mobile-responsive microlearning course for your smartphone or desktop computer, then pass a brief quiz to complete the lesson.
Put your learning into practice with a hands-on activity. Rehearse activities help you refine and apply what you’ve learned specific to your workplace and role.
Reflect on your learning experience. Create a personal Performance Plan to put your learning to work!
Everyone is busy these days. More and more of our customers were asking for shorter, bite-sized training modules. Microlearning engages learners with modules and activities targeted on a specific result and applies only the content necessary to achieve that result.
In the webinar, Chris shared examples and tips for designing effective microlearning.
5 Best Practices for Designing Microlearning
When designing microlearning content, especially for mobile, your modules should be:
Cover one learning objective or goal per course.
Make sure each micro-course is a complete learning experience.
Ensure content is available to everyone.
Repurpose relevant content.
Reward learner progress.
