Microlearning deals with the idea that learning happens in small units of learning or small chunks of information at a time. It allows for the transfer of knowledge and skills quickly. The content is focused and provides the right amount of information to help the user achieve an objective. It can be valuable in a business context. Here’s why microlearning will replace traditional workplace training.
Why microlearning will replace traditional workplace training
Microlearning concerns the idea that the learner can use assets which are applicable to their needs and the device that they will access it on. Because the nature of microlearning is driven by the user, it leads to higher levels of engagement, increased interest by the learner and improves the efficiency of the training program. This is why microlearning will eventually replace the traditional training methods in the workplace. Here are some reasons why.
Microlearning Offers a Quick Transfer
One of the main reasons why microlearning will take over traditional training in the workplace is because it can quickly transfer knowledge that is needed. The user can access the training material easily. Users can easily access on-the-job content that helps them be better at their job. They can access the information from anywhere and at any time from their mobile device, so they are usually more motivated to complete the training.
Microlearning Gets to the Point
Microlearning allows employees to access information when they need it. When the content is provided it is compact, so the learning will invest time to complete the training and gain the knowledge needed to be better at what they do. They are able to receive the information when they need it, and they can have it when they need it the most.
Microlearning Can Be Personalized
Microlearning provides a way for users to personalize their experience to meet their needs. They can access modules and learning units that they want or need to master. The small size of the units allows for individual users to access units that are useful to their job position and complete them quickly. So, they can receive small units of information that help them master various aspects of their job.
Microlearning is so effective, because the small units are easier to complete, and it is easier for the information to be retained in these smaller sections. When you pair the idea that microlearning is more effective than the traditional method of training and it costs less to provide, it will be difficult to stick to the traditional methods.
