What is it ?

Microlearning is the practice of reducing lessons into small, easily-absorbed,bite-sized chunks.

Why is it so effective?

Short-term memory can only retain about four new pieces of information at once. After that, knowledge is pushed out or overwritten meaning that it’s less likely to be transferred to long-term memory.

How to use it?

The best way to engage with microlearning is with a mobile-focussed Learning Management System (LMS). This way, microlearning can leverage the interactive, touchscreen-enabled power of ubiquitous smartphone ownership to create engaging microlessons and easily distribute them to a global userbase.


Interactive lessons are much more engaging and effective.


Scores for correct answers and fastest completion times make learning not feel like learning.

Active learning

Instead of passively making their way through lessons, learners are presented with challenges or problems to solve.


Reinforce everything regardless of whether an answer is right or wrong.


Microlearning on a mobile device means microlessons can be completed anywhere, anytime and, importantly, at a learner’s own pace.

Peer Learning

Experts say 30% of all learning should come from peers: after all, your organisation’s own workers know your organisation best.

Keep it short

Scores for correct answers and fastest completion times make learning not feel like learning.

Spaced Repetition

Improve long-term knowledge retention by periodically repeating short microlessons.


Translating eLearning courses into multiple languages is time consuming and expensive. With microlearning, it can usually all be done instantly in the cloud.

Engaging user experience

Microlearning enables the use of interactive and gamified templates to make existing lesson content more engaging.

Real rewards

Prizing can be implemented by offering rewards to those who complete courses the quickest, with the highest score or before a deadline.

Competition and Leaderboards

Add a competitive element to training with leaderboards showing the best performers.


Immediately see how effective lessons are and how learners have performed. No more isolated Instructional Designers who can’t react to failing courses.

Completion rates

Typical eLearning courses have completion rates under 20%. Microlearning courses regularly hit 90%.


Microlearning software and related services typically cost much less than older, less-agile authoring tools and learning management systems.


Push notifications inform learners of new lessons, deadlines and prizes.
