2:15 PM - 3:00 PM Wednesday, October 23
Expo Hall: eLearning Rockstars Stage
It’s widely accepted that human attention spans are getting shorter. But a recent survey suggests the ability to maintain focus has actually improved over time; today’s learners are just more selective about where they devote their attention. More than ever, it’s important for eLearning designers to capture learner interest and keep them engaged.
This session will debunk a widely-held belief about the attention span of today’s learners. You will explore a blended microlearning approach modeled after the steps musicians take to learn new music, and see examples of how to meet five best practices for mobile microlearning design.
In this session, you will learn:
- What research tells us about the attention spans of today’s learners
- Five best practices for mobile microlearning design
- A novel blended microlearning model for engaging learners
