101 Microlearning in 2018

8:15 AM - 9:30 AM Wednesday, February 21

Microlearning is one of the hottest buzzwords in our industry. A buzzword can be defined as a term whose usage has spread faster than the understanding of what the term means, and microlearning definitely falls into that category.

In the opening session of the Microlearning Summit, we will explore the current state of microlearning. We will examine how our industry’s definition of microlearning has evolved and been shaped over time by advancements in technology and methodology. We will also explore what microlearning is not, separating the term’s hype from its substance. You will leave this session with a better understanding of the current state of microlearning and where it fits into your organization.
