Reinforce Learning on Key Topics Throughout the Year

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. Personally, I like the idea of focusing a microlearning learning activity on one learning objective.

Here are three common and effective uses for microlearning:

  • As part of any training curriculum/training path, or whatever you want to call it.
  • As small memory aids to help combat the training forgetting curve after a training session.
  • As performance support (also known as workflow learning) that delivers helpful information to workers on the job at the time and place where they need it.

Introducing New Microlearning Courses in K-12

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.
