    Join us and dive into the world of micro-learning.

    With the increasing need for just-in-time learning, the challenge is to develop small-size learning tools that bridge the knowledge gap and meet business needs. We’ve been experiencing a shift in learning from day-long workshops to quick “bite-size” knowledge feeds. Successful L&D professionals realize the need to make learning available whenever and where ever needed by the learner.

    During this session you’ll get a better understanding of micro-learning, view examples, and explore how to create a strategy to deploy micro-learning successfully in your organization.


    • Describe what micro-learning is
    • Explore how to overcome challenges and barriers 
    • Create a strategy to deploy micro-learning Discover various tools to develop micro-learning
    • Share tips to deploy micro-learning successfully
