The excitement never stops, does it?

The reason (and the irony) behind microlearning’s superior information retention is that as a method, microlearning is basically unconcerned with information transfer. The kind of learning you did in school, where you learned things from a book and had to apply them towards a test, is not what microlearning designs to achieve. But in the process of doing its day job—helping learners build successful behaviors—microlearning moonlights as a pretty good transmitter of information, too. Here’s the story. [Click to continue…]
