Traits Of Successful Microlearning Experiences

1. Easy To Digest

Microlearning places a minimal burden on your learners’ mental processes. They don’t have to cram too much information in one sitting just to pass the final exam. It’s easy to digest and assimilate into their pre-existing schema. Successful microlearning training experiences are easy to consume for every member of the team, even those who are already stressed or overwhelmed with work responsibilities. In short, resources are designed to be quick and convenient. Above all, they impart information in a simplified format to facilitate rapid knowledge transfer.

2. Focused And Quick To Consume

Another crucial part of microlearning is that it focuses on a single goal or gap. It doesn’t try to cover too much ground while it relies on a targeted approach. For example, a serious game or video demo might teach employees how to perform a sales or customer service task, or help them build compliance knowledge in one key area so that they can absorb the info and move on. If you’re dealing with a more complex issue, you can always break it into separate microlearning resources.

3. Relevant And Real-World Centered

Microlearning training doesn’t beat around the bush. There’s no time to waste, so every activity gets right to the point and provides relevant info—ideally, ideas and concepts that employees can apply in real-world settings to overcome common problems. For instance, a 2-minute scenario or simulation could help employees build interpersonal skills so that they can improve customer service scores. There should be a (practical) rhyme and reason behind every bite-sized support tool in your library.

4. Caters To Personal Needs And Challenges

Microlearning is not one-size-fits-all, contrary to popular belief. There may be a centralized support library where employees can find the resources. However, there should be something for everyone, meaning different delivery methods to cater to different needs and preferences. For instance, most of your staffers may struggle with customer complaints. So, there should be a section in the microlearning library for related skills, protocols, and tasks, instead of a collection of microlearning resources that address non-existent or outdated performance challenges. Survey the team or conduct assessments to identify shared obstacles and learning preferences.

5. Self-Paced

The beautiful thing about microlearning is that it can be molded to suit everyone’s objectives. Employees don’t have to sit down at the computer for hours on end to train. They can simply access the microlearning repository to supplement their knowledge or upskill. It’s self-paced and doesn’t conform to any set schedule. You can even encourage employees to compile a list of go-to microlearning resources and create their own self-guided course. This is ideal for pro-active staffers who want to take the initiative and hone talents in their own time.

Microlearning isn’t about simply breaking up resources you already have and creating disjointed training experiences. Every resource should exhibit these key traits to be successful and learner-centered. Avoid theories, make microlearning practical, and let employees go at their own pace. Ensure that your bite-sized support tools cater to personal needs and make them mobile-friendly so that everyone benefits. Even team members who are out in the field and must bridge gaps immediately.
