That’s not all – this workshop gives you the opportunity to be a Certified eLearning Champion in your organization.
Designing High-Impact Microlearning Solutions
Are you looking to deliver bite-sized learning resources that can be accessed anytime, anywhere by your employees? If yes, microlearning needs to be your priority. This session will give clarity on what microlearning is all about and how you can effectively deploy it. You will be equipped to determine which form of microlearning to use when, efficiently design solutions with instructional integrity, adopt a streamlined approach for implementing microlearning, and more.

Are You Facing These Challenges?

Design

“We need learner-centric e-courses that engage attention, assure longer retention, and facilitate applicability on the job. How can eLearning offer this in the absence of human intervention?”

Development

“Our business is pretty dynamic, and we need employees to have access to the latest updates and developments pretty quickly. Can technology help us?”

Delivery

“How can we implement a learning portal that will help deliver training resources to globally dispersed learners and also keep track of who has completed what, with their scores?”

Translations

“We operate in many regions where employees are comfortable learning in their native languages. How can we offer them training that takes care of their linguistic and cultural preferences?”

Microlearning

“Most of our employees have jobs that don’t leave much scope for lengthy training programs. How can we ensure our training reaches them when and where they need it?”
