Small is beautiful. We’re hardly the first to notice this. The above phrase was popularized by British economist E. F. Schumacher’s book of the same name, which was a huge success in the seventies — and is still used to champion small, focused technologies that can be empowering for people.
In an eLearning and Talent Development context of course, “small”, “focused” and “empowering” can only mean one thing: microlearning — the practice of delivering and consuming learning material in small doses, which the learner can comprehend in a short time.
Since we’ve already published a few introductory posts on microlearning in the past, in this post we won’t waste any time in a general description of what microlearning is — rather we’ll go straight ahead and examine the kind of facilities there are when it comes to microlearning with eFrontPro.
