How to Design a Great Microlearning Experience with Success Stories

Modern workers face many challenges in their work environment. They need to deal with information overloads and manage the distractions that come from all directions, which ultimately result in reduced attention spans. This is where microlearning comes into the picture. Since microlearning requires less time, it has emerged as the best solution to meet the learning requirements of these modern-day workers. But, we have to design a microlearning experience that provides a lasting impact. The main aim of learning experience design is to motivate the learner to learn a concept or a skill effectively. The design of a microlearning course should help the learners connect intellectually with the content, thereby improving their overall learning experience.

In the eBook, we have discussed some guidelines, which will help you to design an effective microlearning course.

  • Use Pictures

    Learners learn better when we use a combination of text and visuals like images, animations, graphics, and videos, in our microlearning course.

  • Chunk the Content

    In microlearning, the content can be presented in crisp and concise manner in bite-sized chunks, which results in faster learning. Also, employees can conveniently access information, when they need during on-the-job training. This helps reduce cognitive overload on learners and increases the speed of learning.

  • Content is Self-Contained

    Generally, microlearning modules are of five minutes duration. We have to make an impact on the learner with our content in this short time. So, choose your content wisely and appropriately. You need to design the course that is self-contained. You can use short overview video, quick reference guide, mini-games, mind maps, data charts, etc.

  • Mobile-First Approach

    Since microlearning courses include interesting activities, interactivities, and mini-games, learners will surely enjoy the look and feel of the content and design. The mobile-first approach can provide a compelling microlearning experience to learners. We have to design microlearning modules that are easily accessible on mobile devices.

  • Specific, Targeted, and Small

    The microlearning courses are small in duration, specific on the concept, and targeted at a particular group of learners.

  • Acknowledge the Learners

    When the learners complete a challenge within the microlearning module, you can encourage them by allocating scores, badges, or some kind of rewards.

  • Case Studies

    The eBook also contains some examples of microlearning that we have implemented successfully. Like:

    • Drug Discovery – In the course, we used a decision-tree activity to ensure the employees’ understanding of drug discovery concept and the process. The course completion rate was 95%.
    • Health and Nutrition – We developed this microlearning course by using interesting gamification elements like pop quiz, timed mini-games, and leaderboard. The course completion rate was 90%.
    • Compliance – This is a short and engaging scenario-based interactive microlearning course. The course completion rate was 100%.
    • Banking Products – We designed this microlearning course using a variety of interactive templates, sliders, and flip-cards to explain the concepts. The course completion rate was 98%.
