EVALUATING MICROLEARNING-QUICK GUIDE
Are you evaluating the quality and potential effectiveness of off-the-shelf microlearning courses?
Here are key factors to consider:
Lights...Camera...a few words about media design
As an L&D leader, you and your team are in the best position to evaluate all of the above factors, except maybe one; Media Design.
Why? Because it is a sensory element that can often be affected by the personal tastes or biases of the individual experiencing the content (you and your team).
The AUDIENCE always comes first
As a restaurant operator, your employees are modern learners, with very short attention spans. Yes, the content and instructional design must be on point, but the media approach must grab and keep the AUDIENCE’S attention first and foremost.
Do you have persona(s) for the audience and a data-driven approach to engaging the audience?
Mixing it up...for learning engagement and retention
Our microlearning courses use a mix of media approaches, including high-quality images, voiceover, video, and animations- with the primary purpose of maximizing learning engagement. Our media design approach is based on our team's extensive experience implementing effective eLearning programs, plus proven data and research on best practices for optimizing learning comprehension and retention.
Let your AUDIENCE decide
If the media design ‘fit’ is a sticky point in your evaluation process, an important step will be to TRIAL, TEST, and COMPARE with the intended audience, using learner surveys and engagement metrics. You can then use the data gathered from your audience inputs to validate which eLearning vendors' microlearning courses are engaging for your employees.
