Four Examples of Microlearning in Business

As business gets more and more complex, keeping staff up to date with changes gets more and more challenging. One of the most effective ways to address this is to utilise short, easy-to-complete micro lessons. This chunking learning strategy helps keep staff engaged and informed about workplace changes – and does so with minimal interruption. Using microlearning is an effective human resources solution for workplace learning. Here are four examples of microlearning in business.

Microlearning for up-skilling staff

Up-skilling staff (and keeping senior staff up to date with required skills) is a great use case for microlearning. Keeping staff aware of (and understanding) new skills that they need to succeed can be done with microlearning.

Whenever a new skill is needed or a new system needs to be implemented creating a series of short lessons gets the needed information in front of staff when it’s required. It can also be used to reinforce skillsets and the adoption of changes. The use of spaced repetition in EdApp’s Brain Boost feature drives retention of this information.

Microlearning for added value

Added value to your product offering is always important. The more value you can add the better so you can retain customers. Many of EdApp’s customers are using microlearning to deliver value to their customers. They are doing this by creating informative lessons that provide added value information to customers.

Imagine providing your customers with a short cybersecurity course to keep them in the know about online privacy. Creation of courses that compliment a product offering is a great way to engage learners. It’s easy to do, keeps them informed and provides added value and trust to your product.

Onboarding staff with microlearning in business

Onboarding tasks, lessons and cultural insights can be built into a planned microlearning course. Outlining the core things that new staff need to learn in a microlearning course is a great way to speed up the onboarding process.

Courses can be designed to introduce people to what’s what in the company and walk them through the steps needed at their own pace. EdApp analytics keep track of completed lessons and courses to ensure onboarding is completed smoothly.

Teaching soft skills with microlearning

Soft skills are one of the most sought-after abilities in the workplace. But with any sort after skill they are hard to find and cultivate. Microlearning is a great way to deliver lessons around soft skills straight to staff’s own mobile phones.

Soft skills like cultural understanding, leadership skills and ideas for leading meetings can be sent out to grow staff skillsets based on their roles.
