Sessions during the Microlearning Design Online Conference will examine different types of microlearning content, when and how it can be used, and tips and techniques for being strategic with the approach.
Just because content is short doesn't necessarily mean it's effective. In this session, you'll find out how to be strategic with the approach. Explore four key ways to leverage microlearning, and learn about five different microlearning formats. Learn more.
Podcasts are a medium that allows you to share right-sized content in a form people can easily access on-the-go. In this session, you'll discover practical strategies for how to get started creating and sharing your own podcasts for learning. Learn more.
Video can be a powerful tool for just-in-time content. This session will explore five common types of microlearning video. Learn which is best for which situations, the costs and timelines you'll want to take into account, and the skills you'll want to build to design and develop each effectively. Learn more.
Effective microlearning design goes beyond just cutting up longer content into smaller chunks. In this session you'll discover what cognitive science can tell us about how to craft these learning experiences in ways to drive long-term engagement, mastery, and retention. Learn more.

Simulations don't necessarily have to be lengthly in order to make an impact. In this session, you'll learn about the Short Sims approach—a way to develop competence and conviction in short, replayable sim experiences. Learn more.
Making a move into creating microlearning doesn't necessarily mean an investment in new tools. Sometimes you just need to look at a tool you already have in a new way. This session will share how PowerPoint can help you design and develop surprisingly engaging short form content. Learn more.
You can use voice-activated assistants like Alexa and Siri to look up directions or play a song, but have you ever considered how this technology could help people learn? Take a closer look at common voice technologies and explore how you can start creating microlearning experiences with them yourself. Learn more.
With all the ideas you've gathered over the course of this event, how can you hit the ground running and start applying them right away? In this final session, you'll uncover tools and approaches that will help you immediately start planning, designing, and developing flexible microlearning components. Learn more.
