Microlearning: this is how it works

Have you ever heard of microlearning? Everyone has a packed agenda, a phone which is constantly ringing and trainings which still need to be finished. As a manager, you want employees to finish their trainings on time, but they have no time too spare. Microlearnings are the ideal solution. We gladly explain how a microlearning works exactly and why it works so well, so read on!

What is a microlearning?

Microlearnings are manageable, small ‘chunks’ of study material, which will occupy a user for a maximum of 10 minutes. They’re nice and short and very useful! That’s exactly the reason why we use microlearnings at Hubper. We believe in making learning easier and more fun. One step towards this goal is making microlearnings available on our platform. You can also follow microlearnings in our app, whenever and wherever you prefer!

At Hubper we want users to achieve a certain desired level of knowledge, and remain on this level in an efficient and effective way. The intensity of the microlearnings is adapted to the users’ level of knowledge per learning goal. The users are informed by the system when new microlearnings are ready for them. 

The benefits of microlearnings

We’ll list the 3 advantages for you:

1. Microlearning is always there for you!

Microlearning is a small learning unit. You can go through one, in a maximum of 10 minutes whenever you need it. This learning form contributes to performance support. In this way, you have the right information available at the right moment. Users focus as a consequence on targeted, relevant information.

2. Quick and easy!

Microlearning makes sure there’s a lower cognitive load and no long attention spans are needed. Learning doesn’t need to be a planned activity, and can happen quick and in between other activities. The barrier to start learning is lowered in this way, and users are more inclined to keep up with their learning processes. This results in more involvement and motivation of the employees.

3. An efficient & effective learning process

Because microlearning concern targeted and relevant information, this information can directly be put into practice. As a result, the information is memorised for a longer period of time, compared to long pieces of text. The smaller investments of time and the greater impact in practice conclude in a cost-effective learning process.
