Is micro-learning the future of learning? Not so much.

microlearning-smallI’ve been seeing some posts that suggest that micro-learning is the future of learning.

I certainly agree that micro-learning, curated content, “bite sized” learning and other forms of JIT (just-in-time) learning are extremely useful. Always have been, always will be. They may even be the shiny object that we will all chase after this month.

Is this the “Future Of Learning?” Not so much.

Bottom line – we need to do several things in L&D:

  • Compliance (litigation risk management) training. JIT isn’t a help here.
  • Up-skilling people for complex tasks and jobs. JIT is part of the puzzle, but not even a big part.
  • Getting answers to specific questions for a task I have at hand. JIT is ideal.

But JIT isn’t the future of learning. I’m not even sure it’s all that much of a new thing – perhaps old wine in a new bottle?
