What is Microlearning?

Microlearning courses are designed to be short and focused on a specific topic. This makes them perfect for employees trying to learn new things on their mobile devices.

Microlearning courses are also perfect for employees who want to learn new things but only have a little time. Employees can take microlearning courses independently without taking time out of their busy schedules.

Microlearning is a great way to deliver employee training on mobile devices. Now let's talk about how businesses can integrate microlearning into their training models.

How Businesses Can Use Microlearning

Businesses can use microlearning to deliver employee training on mobile devices in a few different ways. Here is a step-by-step guide:

Step 1: Decide what type of microlearning course you want to create.

Do you want to create a microlearning course from scratch? Or do you want to create a microlearning course by repurposing existing content?

If you want to create a microlearning course from scratch, you'll need to determine the learning objectives for the course. To do this, you'll need to answer the following questions:

- What do you want your employees to learn from the course?

- What type of content will best help them achieve these objectives? (e.g., text, audio, video, etc.)

- How long should the course be? (Remember, microlearning courses are typically 5 minutes or less.)

If you want to create a microlearning course by repurposing existing content, you'll need to determine which existing content you want to use and how you can break it down into smaller, bite-sized pieces.

Step 2: Choose a mobile learning platform that can deliver your course.

Once you've decided what type of microlearning course you want to create, it's time to choose an LMS that supports mobile devices to deliver your course. There are many different mobile learning platforms, so take your time to find one that meets your needs. Make sure to consider the following when making your decision:

- Ease of use: You'll want to choose a platform that's easy to use, both for you and your employees.

- Ease of implementation: You'll want to choose a platform that's easy to implement and doesn't require a lot of technical know-how.

- Pricing: You'll want to choose a platform that fits your budget.

Step 3: Distribute your course to employees via the mobile learning platform.

Distribution is critical to the success of your microlearning course. You'll want to ensure that your employees can easily access the course and have the tools they need to complete it.

For example, if you're using an LMS to deliver your course, you'll want to ensure that your employees can log in and access the course from their mobile devices.

Step 4: Track employee progress and completion via the mobile learning platform.

Monitoring progress is an integral part of any employee training program. You can track employee progress and completion via the mobile learning platform with microlearning.

For example, most LMS platforms, like the Bites app, have built-in tracking and reporting features that allow you to see how employees progress through the course. This data can help identify areas where employees are struggling and need additional support.

Conclusion

Microlearning is a great way to deliver employee training on mobile devices. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily create and deliver a microlearning course to your employees. Also, these steps can help you track employee progress and identify areas where they need additional support.
