Microlearning is relevant content delivered in short, focused bursts. It allows busy learners to get the knowledge and skills they need, when they need it.
As someone with a graduate degree, but the attention span of a goldfish, I’ve benefitted from the rapid increase of easily available microlearning content, much of it on video.
These video pioneers helped me master a variety of skills from home and automobile repair to Excel pivot charts.
Like my kids, I’ve come to expect to a helpful video tutorial to save the day whenever I run into a new technical challenge. What’s more, I discovered I like to create and share microlearning content. From my screencasts, to windshield drive-by real estate videos, my social media analytics prove my circles of friends and followers respond positively to microlearning.
If producing your own microlearning content is a skill you’d like to explore, I’ll be posting some helpful tutorials that will have you up and running in a weekend.
