Webinar Recording Details



Everyone knows that microlearning is short, but brevity is only one element that makes microlearning so appealing to users and learners everywhere. Other elements include the learner’s context—how and when they engage with the material—and hyper-focused, curated content. Finding the right balance is difficult—sometimes it means kicking your instructional design process up a notch. We’ll share principles and practices to help your microlearning evolve.

In this webinar, you will:
  • Review key principles for designing great microlearning
  • Explore microlearning examples
  • Test drive the principles in a short “lab”
