What is Microlearning?

Microlearning is a training technique that breaks information up into focused bursts that can be grasped in 10 minutes or less. This allows your employees to get focused information dealing with specific topics.

The training material can be video, audio, or text, and usually includes a quiz at the end to enhance understanding of the information.

Microlearning Effectiveness

Traditional in-person training sessions generally take hours at a time. Research has shown that people lose focus after 90-120 minutes, meaning everything taught after that is ignored or forgotten immediately.

Infinit-I uses microlearning techniques to take advantage of how people process information, providing short lessons and activities to enforce the information given. Training materials can be switched up or broken into different sessions, keeping employees from getting bored and tuning out, reinforcing retention.

The 80/20 Rule

Microlearning training is based on the 80/20 rule, which states that 80% of results are driven by 20% of effort. Focused lessons deal with the most important points of the topic, increasing employee attention, retention, and comprehension of the information presented.

Microlearning focuses on 1-2 objectives at a time so employees can take away more knowledge from each session.

As employees progress, they can complete training on the same topic, focusing on different objectives. This allows users to build on the knowledge they already have and expand their understanding.

Consistent, Ongoing Training

Microlearning allows for consistent, ongoing training throughout the year. Using Spaced Learning, a specialized microlearning technique, you can build on the topics most important to your company, reinforcing important issues or concerns.

With Infinit-I’s microlearning techniques, you can assign training on important topics that employees can access at their convenience. This cuts down on productivity disruptions and makes training easier for everyone involved.
