5 Top Microlearning Benefits

As a course author, you might be wondering what all the fuss is about microlearning.

Well, wonder no more.

In this video, I’m going to show you the top five benefits of microlearning and how it can help you create more effective online training for your learners.

1. Increased engagement and retention

Microlearning is more engaging than traditional methods because it is more interactive and hands-on. Learners are also more likely to remember what they have learned when it is presented in small chunks, as opposed to one long lecture or reading assignment.

2. Improved flexibility

Microlearning is very flexible and can be customized to meet the needs of each learner. For example, if a learner is struggling with a particular concept, they can go back and review that section without having to relearn the entire lesson. The learner can also consume the content on their schedule at their own pace.

3. Greater accessibility

Microlearning is more accessible than traditional methods because it can be delivered via digital platforms such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets. This means that learners can access microlearning content anytime, anywhere.

4. Increased efficiency

Microlearning is more efficient than traditional methods because it allows learners to focus on specific concepts and skills without being distracted by other material. As a result, learners can learn new information more quickly and effectively.

5. Reduced costs for both the learner and the course author

What’s a bit microlearning benefit? Cost. Microlearning is often less expensive than traditional methods because it does not require expensive materials, location expenses, equipment, or an instructor. This makes microlearning courses much easier to scale. 

When done well, microlearning can be an effective way to help learners retain information and improve their skills.
