Microlearning-that is learning in short, one to five minute bursts that anyone can access any time-is the next big thing in learning. But quality is critical.  When learners have the power to choose their learning and share what they find to be effective, your program is judged by every click, like, and share. In this program you will use MILE, a microlearning design model to create outstanding microlearning programs.  The MILE model gives you a roadmap enabling you to create a program structure, gather resources using the 3Cs (curate, create, and crowdsource), implement, promote, and evaluate your programs. Outcomes for you will ensure the learners engage with your materials. When learners engage with the materials and find them effective they will keep coming back ... and tell their colleagues about them too.

Program Overview

Program Overview

We have probably all had experiences of learning in this short, bite-sized way outside work—figuring out how to do your first oil change, refreshing the steps for buying and trading stocks, or maybe troubleshooting an upgrade to your smartphone. But how do we apply it to corporate learning? Is this a strategy that works for all training, all the time, with all audiences? And how do you ensure accountability and assess learning?

In this practical program, you’ll dive into the MILE model to determine the best microlearning strategy for your organization’s business needs. You’ll come out ready to design and develop a microlearning program that addresses the learning needs of all your employees across your entire organization, one that they will not only want to use, but will also share with others. Additionally this course will show you what to do once you have implemented microlearning—including how to measure for effectiveness and keep your program content current.


Why You Should Attend

  • Apply principles of microlearning and the MILE model in your training projects.
  • Utilize the three Cs to generate resources for your microlearning strategy.
  • Employ tactics to get your learning viewed and shared.

What to expect:

  • Interactive Format: During this online workshop, you will collaborate in real time with your facilitator and classmates through interactive group discussions, polls, chats, and whiteboard design sessions.
  • Supplemental Resources: This workshop includes electronic tools and templates to help you apply what you learned.
  • Technical Requirements: Each session of the workshop is conducted in the WebEx Training Center platform with a toll-free teleconference or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) option for the audio component. Special software is not required. You only need a standard web browser and telephone or VoIP capability to participate. In addition, it is strongly recommended to use a desktop or laptop computer as using a tablet or phone severely limits your ability to fully and actively participate in the program.  In addition, it is strongly recommended to use a desktop or laptop computer as using a tablet or phone severely limits your ability to fully and actively participate in the program.
