Your Microlearning Primer

Microlearning. Is it a text message or a video? Does it need to be shorter than five minutes? Do you just “chunk” a longer course into smaller pieces? Find the answers to these and other questions in this concise, comprehensive, and first-of-its-kind resource that will accommodate the most- and least-informed about microlearning.

Gleaning insights from research, theory, and practice, authors Karl M. Kapp and Robyn A. Defelice debunk the myths around microlearning and present their universal definition. In Microlearning: Short and Sweet, they go beyond the hypothetical and offer tips on putting microlearning into action.

Recognizing what makes microlearning effective is critical to avoiding costly, wasteful investments in the latest learning trend or newest shiny object. Only by understanding the nuances behind it can you decide what format and style suits your needs. Whether you are creating an individual product or a series of learning solutions, you need to follow a well-designed plan.

This book guides readers through how, when, and why to design, develop, implement, and evaluate microlearning. Case studies punctuate what works and what doesn’t.

User-friendly and highly accessible, this book is a must-have for instructional designers and anyone interested in microlearning.

Very excited about this book. We designed it to provide practical information for creating everything from a single one-time microlearning event to creating an entire curriculum focused on microlearning.
Alan - I think it would give you a foundation of how to approach using microlearning to support your learning approach. It will not go into details on how to create a specific microlearning product, such as a podcast. However, it will assist you in determining what use cases are most relevant to you and your organizations needs and how to create a strategy to using microlearning as a framework and also guidance on how to approach implementation and evaluation.
