Enterprises encase a vast amount of knowledge in various departments of the company. Combining all of this knowledge for a holistic approach to employee training sometimes proves to be difficult, however is simplified through the use of an authoring tool for microlearning.
Authoring tools are primarily responsible for the development of responsive and adaptive microlesson templates, with the aim to optimally educate employees on company processes.

Information is easily accessible
A mobile LMS which sports a cloud-based authoring tool allows for information to be easily and instantly shared. Information can be instantaneously visible to learners within minutes after content is created or updated. This way, employees can access course content whenever and wherever they may be, tailoring learning to the needs and preferences of learners.

Training is further enhanced by fostering communication amongst employees through the use of gamification. Gamification refers to the incorporation of gaming elements into formal corporate training, to create a more engaging and informative environment for employees. From this, learners have intrinsic motivation instilled within them, implementing a sense of encouragement to healthily compete with their coworkers.
Learning is flexible
Authoring tools allow learning to be significantly more flexible, as they are accessible anywhere and in short bursts, avoiding excessive time consumption.

Content design is a crucial aspect to the effectiveness of a microlearning module. In actual fact, learners are more likely to complete training based on the aesthetic and functionality of the microlesson. Engaging content design lies in the hands of instructional designers who design and curate lessons with the primary objective to boost productivity and motivation embedded in employees.
