Digital Technological Innovation and acceleration have been augmenting organizations to evolve from “traditional” classroom-based training to technology-enabled corporate training solutions and hence making a profound impact on the corporate workplace, apart from just transforming K-12 Education.
The ever-changing and rising demands of the modern hybrid workplace are making it challenging for organizations to take-up traditional classroom-based training. Here is where MicroLearning comes into picture and is the need of the hour.
What is MicroLearning?
MicroLearning is an approach which is based on the idea of breaking ‘larger’ learning (/training) components into ‘smaller’ and manageable chunks (pieces or modules) that are easier to understand, grasp and learn.
An average human memory can only hold the information about a maximum of 9 objects (at any given time) before becoming overloaded (according to the research of Cognitive Load Theory). Though, there is no thumb rule on how long a microlearning module should last, it is typically around 5-10 minutes in duration, so that the learner can leverage the concepts and aspects.
To facilitate easier learning, microlearning authoring tools support a wider variety of content formats which might include:
- a mobile learning app
- digital flashcards
- gamification aspects
How does MicroLearning assist to improve Frontline Workforce performance?
1) Facilitate Easy Employee Onboarding:
Learning choices for the modern millenia workforce are evolving and keep changing and hence Content in various digital rich formats in shorter byte-sized formats are more preferable, to create, consume and retain the interest of modern workforce.
MicroLearning assists with shorter chunks of information during new hire onboarding and orientation.
2) Distributed Frontline Workforce Training:
Organizations are evolving in adapting to hybrid work patterns with a remote or distributed workforce.
MicroLearning platforms for businesses are more suited for a remotely working environment/distributed workforce which:
- reduces employee training costs and
- can personalize the content based on individual employees learning needs
3) Fostering Blended Learning:
MicroLearning assists in complementing the training sessions so that L&D Teams can design a learning/training strategy that inculcates and includes traditional classroom training and remote learning in byte-sized formats, thus improving the engagement of the employees and thus further elevating employees with efficient knowledge retention.
4) Promotes Intensive Training with evolving Product Forms:
It is extremely challenging for companies to invest time and money on their employees to train them with evolving product changes, for improved sales.
MicroLearning Platforms with mobile-first interface through its easy to use, short and interactive methods will assist to deliver enhanced product knowledge to sales workforce via making them efficient and effective, which further improves the engagement.
5) Assisting Technical Training for Employees:
With a byte-sized learning approach, MicroLearning assists in simplifying complex technical learning procedures by simplifying them into simpler modules.
Software simulation models will assist in providing hands-on training through a stepwise demonstration.
MicroLearning Platforms have become imperative for Employee Upskilling/Reskilling needs with increased adoption to hybrid work environments. With the inclusion of gamification elements and evolving technologies, the respective training platforms are fostering employee engagement effectively.
