What is microlearning?
Microlearning is the breaking down of information into very small and comprehensive parts and split into short learning sessions. The purpose is using the limited concentration capacity of the learners and providing them with tiny bits of information which can be quickly picked up by the student. Instead of long reviewing hours and tough study material, microlearning puts the focus on easily digestible content and short reviewing times in order to get the most out of a learning session.
A few years ago, “adaptive learning” became the favored phrase for many EdTech companies. There is plenty of hot air about what adaptive learning is and what it can do. What most companies and people unfortunately don´t know is that adaptive learning is actually more than just personalized learning paths resulting from the test results.
