In this session, you’ll learn about the benefits of microlearning, why it’s trending, and what types of content and formats are suitable for it. You’ll learn about the steps you can take to streamline your microlearning development efforts while ensuring a consistent, quality product. The speakers will walk you through a case study that resulted in the development of a series of micro-courses instrumental in educating a new sales force joining a company as the result of a large merger. You’ll hear about the pitfalls, the benefits, and how you can prepare for a shift to microlearning.
