August 11th, 2016 E-Learning

computer-on-deskMicro-learning is somewhat of a newcomer in everyday elearning vernacular. Sure, instructional designers have always known about delivering content in small, manageable chunks but it was never as much of a necessity as it is today.

The rise of mobile devices and elearning has resulted in greater demand for micro-content. It is now a must-have skill for anyone creating online training as it will only be in greater demand over the years.

If you are not yet familiar with micro-learning and you are involved in the elearning industry then now is a good time to come up to speed. The concept is rather straight-forward. As with anything, it comes down to execution.

Some content is perfect in micro form and other content is not. Making the decision as to the best delivery method for elearning is the job of an instructional designer. By simply knowing micro-learning in more detail you will be better prepared to make the appropriate recommendation.

But making a recommendation is only the first step. If you are consulting a client then you will need to back-up that recommendation with some facts and figures.

To help you get caught up on the micro-learning phenomenon, consider reading the five articles below.

Hi friend! Thank you so much for this post!
Yes, you are right about the micro content offered on the sites of learning courses.

My story

In 2011
I offered a program for my 22,000 members of a group I owned, in google groups and old orkut.
Yes they were the same members, because I did not trust the orkut platform and facebook.

(I confess that I still do not trust facebook)

I answered all the questions in my communities and my google group and sent lessons to all members.

So in November of that year, I decided to create a private group because I was unemployed, and needed money to pay my rent.

Buddy I will summarize the story: In December of the same year, I had 4900 requests in the queue and got my first 10,000- € using that format.

My groups grew up, and I got over 120,000 people interested in my methodology and my life story.

But I got a good job selling marketing, and I ended up abandoning blogs and groups for 3 years.
Yes, stupidity on my part.

I returned in 2014 and out of ignorance deposited all my coins in the OPTMIZEPRESS and only after one year in the Brazilian entrepreneurship group.

An excellent group called LeadLovers … I met LEARNDASH
It has a user that was very successful, with the software of LMS LEARNDASH

I will try to deploy the same technique again in my list of 120,000 real people and use my sms platform to activate the 52,000 for my new project.

I’m a bit confused and stressed, for personal reasons friend but I will get it!

Thank you very much my friend
