About the Workshop

With today’s twin challenges of short attention spans and busy employee schedules, organizations are hard pressed to offer knowledge - just the right amount, on the right topic, at the moment of need. Microlearning has emerged as an ideal solution to effectively address these issues.

In short, microlearning embraces a learning strategy that delivers information to learners in small, targeted chunks that are carefully aligned with desired individual and organizational results. Each “learning nugget” is typically only a few minutes in length and focused on a single learning objective.

Microlearning can be configured in a variety of engaging formats such:







Case Scenarios

Digital Flashcards


Mobile Apps

Interactive Resources

Concept and Process Maps

Come join us for an interactive, hands-on one-day workshop on designing microlearning modules - where we discuss all things micro for maximized business results. And, BYOC - bring your own content! You’ll be able to immediately apply our principles and practices to your own needs.

You'll learn from practitioners with 30+ years of instructional design experience; plus, be able to collaborate and network with other top professionals from a variety of organizations.

2017 Events

We are passionate about helping customers choose the right solutions, at the right time, to yield the best results. We organize workshops on the latest developments in eLearning, drawing from our experience working for organizations in 30+ countries. Until last year, we were conducting seminars only at customer locations in the US, India and Europe.
