Bite-sized Learning, Big Engagement—How MicroBuilder Makes it Possible

Attention spans are shrinking, workers are being tasked to do more with less, and often, there's no time to sit through formal training. The solution? Microlearning—bite-sized content that meets us where we are and fits into our daily schedules.

Microlearning offers several benefits for corporate training purposes:

  1. Flexibility and Accessibility: Microlearning breaks down training content into bite-sized modules, making it easier for employees to access and engage with the material. Since these modules are typically short, employees can fit them into their busy schedules, whether it's during a lunch break or while commuting. This flexibility allows for learning to occur at the individual's own pace and convenience, leading to higher engagement and retention rates.

  2. Improved Retention: Microlearning enhances information retention by delivering content in small, focused chunks. Research has shown that shorter learning sessions can lead to better knowledge retention compared to traditional long-form training methods. Employees are more likely to remember key concepts when they are presented in a concise and targeted manner, leading to better knowledge application in real-world scenarios.

  3. Cost-Effectiveness: Microlearning can be more cost-effective than traditional training methods. Since content is delivered in smaller modules, it's often quicker and cheaper to produce. Additionally, microlearning reduces the time employees spend away from their regular tasks for training, minimizing productivity losses. Moreover, because microlearning is often delivered through digital platforms, it eliminates the need for expensive in-person training sessions or printed materials, further reducing costs for the organization.

These are just a few of the reasons that ELB Learning created MicroBuilder™, a super simple rapid authoring tool for creating microlearning in minutes. Anyone can use MicroBuilder, whether they have years of instructional design and eLearning development experience or not.
