The Appeal of Micro Learning

The idea of ‘bite-sized’ learning has been around for a while but ‘micro learning’ is rapidly gaining ground in learning and development circles because it enables individuals to access specific information, tips and ideas at the point of need. By delivering highly appropriate ‘bursts of learning’ in a timely manner, learners are able to take on a concept or idea very quickly and apply it immediately to the task in hand. This means that learning is applied, absorbed and retained much more readily. And because micro learning is immediately useful, learners tend to want to use it again as a means to accessing what they want, when they need it. This encourages a positive learning habit.

Short WATCH & GO® videos deliver micro learning instantly online whenever and wherever required, at the desk or via a mobile device.
