Micro-Learning Design Las Vegas ASTDTECH

I presented at ASTD TechKnowledge Conference in Las Vegas, January 28, 2010.

The topic I spoke of: Using Micro-eLearning Design for Learning 2.0 and Traditional eLearning.

Gist:

5 Step Process
  • Be succinct
  • Relate
  • Interpret
  • Apply
  • Micro-Applications
Micro-learning instructional design is based on storytelling.

Use micro-learning in operational areas where managers don't want to waste time in lengthy training.

Questions from the audience:

Attendee: How long should a micro-learning be?
Ray: Depends on what your audience, content and tool and other considerations.
If for doctors, micro-might mean 5 minutes for each topic in video observation of a surgical procedure. For technician using a PDA or phone to check newest part, it may be only 30 seconds because he is on the job trouble-shooting an equipment. For an orientation training, micro might be 3 minutes.

Attendee: What is micro-instructional design?
Ray: Story-based Design

Attendee: How to implement micro-learning in enterprises?
Ray: The micro-ways. Find operational areas that can save time, reduce costs, increase profits with micro-learning. Usually line management understand this language. No one wants to waste time in operations.
