Many people in the content development and learning arena, including subject matter experts (SMEs), developers, IT professionals, and learners, are not accustomed to working with micro-content. The additional constraints of focusing on micro-content further complicate the typical development challenges one faces when working with these groups. These challenges include learning new ways to capture expertise from SMEs, handling new constraints during the design process, working with IT professionals to make the micro-content available, and ensuring learners appropriately utilize the micro-content.

You’ll explore how to overcome and avoid many of the challenges faced by designers throughout the development and delivery cycle as they work with micro-content. You’ll learn strategies for gathering information for micro-content, developing and delivering micro-content for learning, and how to address common obstacles while doing so.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The characteristics of micro-content
