Microlearning is a holistic approach for skill based learning and education which deals with relatively small learning units. It involves short-term-focused strategies especially designed for skill based understanding/learning/education.
Microlearning can be used for formal as well as informal training needs. They can be used as Performance Support Tools (PSTs), as standalone learning nuggets or as part of a series of courses. They can also be deployed through LMS or weaved in a learning path of a learning portal.
Now more than ever, the job market has an urgency for Micro-Credentials – these mini qualifications and learning experiences are becoming the forefront of professional skill sets, with 95% of human resource managers actively seeking micro-credentials from potential candidates.
Especially as a result of this technological age, employers must ensure that their team is fully equipped with a combination of both hard and soft skills. Micro-credentialing solidifies this need, for both employers and employees.
