What is microlearning?
You can find any number of definitions for microlearning out there.
But at it's root, microlearning is a short learning activity. Usually a minute or so, but perhaps as many as five minutes. And it's usually designed around one learning objective, or a small number of closely related learning objectives.

The Vector Training Safety & Compliance Course Library includes ten new microlearning courses to accompany our most frequently completed courses on critical K-12 safety topics. The short 2-3 minute microlearning courses feature real life scenarios designed to reinforce learning after the completion of the full course.
Bite-sized learning experiences engage the learner with short, actionable content. Using a microlearning model of spaced out repetition is a proven retention-boosting method that will keep this important training top of mind for your staff.
The microlearning courses are accessible as a separate version of the full courses within the Vector Training System and can be assigned to your staff in the same way as all other training assignments.
