It’s been proven that the average attention span is 8.25 seconds. This statistic explains the rise of Micro-learning. Micro-Learning is defined as small, specific bursts of learning. Cell phones in our hands & information scrollable within seconds, this micro-learning concept is all the rage.
How can you and your team create an environment of learning by incorporating micro-learning? It’s actually pretty simple; by building content that is short, always accessible, and informative! As you are creating content, keep these three descriptors in mind.
We encourage people to keep tutorials no longer than 25 steps & only allow 250 characters per step. This smaller chunk approach to learning we’ve found to be very successful. It’s easier for the learner to consume & it’s easier to maintain the content. Win-win!
