Designing For Bite-sized Learning. After identifying a training need, learning designers often think of the solution as a “program”—the classroom experience, the online courses, and the Learning Management System to organize it all.

Designing For Bite-sized Learning

While robust programs might be best for certain projects, leaving out the in-between “snack times” could mean missed opportunities to engage and reinforce learning. Microlearning, also called “bite-sized learning,” is great strategy for helping learners solve real problems or keeping the them connected to the topic long-term. Bite-sized learning was the topic at our February 2015 Collaborative Learning Network session. As always, the versatile professionals from a mix of industries—healthcare, creative agencies, government programs, and education—helped the topic come alive.

We spent 90 minutes defining microlearning, looking at examples, and sharing our own experiences with it as learners and designers. The sessions aren’t meant to be presentations.

What’s your business goal?

If you skip it, much of the blueprint won’t make sense. The strongest projects are designed to change business performance. The business goal is the reason the elearning exists. A clear, specific business goal: Helps you identify the crucial content Helps you design realistic, hands-on activities Motivates learners Shows that you have a measurable impact on your company Unfortunately, it’s common to develop elearning with the wrong goal in mind—one that has little to do with business performance. You work for a company that sells both micro-widgets and mega-widgets.
