Soukaina is a manager at recruitment company, Recruitvine. She just bought a learning platform. It offers an arsenal of digital tools with which she wants to guide new recruiters through the authentic Recruitvine recruitment process. The company that sold her the learning platform made Soukaina enthusiastic about microlearning. “Always offer small pieces of content to keep users captivated and not overwhelm them,” the consultant recommended. Soukaina does divide up her learning content, but doesn’t really know what format to choose for each piece…

Successful microlearning: the medium is the message

The power of microlearning lies in its focus on specific learning objectives. But, the medium is the message! The medium with which you communicate content determines the meaning the receiver gives to it.

That’s why, when creating microlearning, it’s important to choose the right tools. A downloadable infographic (made by a competent graphic designer) makes complex information accessible. For example, it can make Souikana’s newest recruiters Tim and Bianca aware of crucial steps in the Recruitvine recruitment process.

In order to attract the attention of these newcomers in particular, a casual animated video that they receive by email is more effective. In order to communicate best practices, Soukaina can publish a monthly instructional video that Tim and Bianca are required to consult on the learning platform.

If, two months after their onboarding, Soukaina wants to make sure they don’t lose sight of the steps in the recruitment process, a fun quiz or a game of miracles can do the trick.

Create a learning culture through microlearning

In short, microlearning indeed makes learning easier and more accessible for employees who are already busy enough on a daily basis. It creates a culture in which learning and self-improvement are the most common things in the world. Something that makes every team grow.
