Sometimes it feels that knowledge is in a locked drawer or vault. No one can access it. 

The topic of retaining knowledge and intellectual assets has been discussed within the knowledge management and learning circles for many years now. There is a realization among organizations that with turnover, retirement and attrition, the corporate collective intelligence goes with it. In Microlearning, we subscribed to what George Siemens proposes that knowledge is no longer stored in certain places or confined in some people’s expertise. Knowledge and information are now free-flowing where workers can grab and use the knowledge from different sources - from other people, interactions, sharing of experiences, and web services that provide knowledge solutions. One of the impacts of Microlearning is the sustaining free flow of answers and solutions so it becomes apparent and easily accessible by workers while on the job. Potential impact areas: 

 
  • Culture of open sharing and assistance 
  • Answers and solutions are easy to find and access  
  • Constancy and persistence of knowledge supply
  • Handling corrections of obsolete knowledge
