Although microlearning videos are often described as less boring and tedious than their longer workplace training counterparts, brevity alone does not accomplish this. The key is to begin with really good scripts that spell out precisely what you plan to produce, including visuals, narration, dialogue, action, and more. They are essentially design documents with content rolled into one. 

In this session, you will explore the specific characteristics of microlearning videos for mobile viewers and discuss why you need to take these into account when writing scripts. You will view and critique different videos, offering insight into what engages viewers and why. You will also describe the elements of a well-written script and how to take optimal advantage of the microlearning video format. You will leave this session with simple, easy-to-implement tips and tricks to extend the useful lifetime of any video product.
