Global self-paced e-learning market: Growing popularity of microlearning

Microlearning refers to learning that uses the bite-sized content. It is gaining prominence in the corporate training sector owing to its small size and fast completion rate. Microlearning modules are easy to create as they consist of small chunks of information and can include short videos, infographics, and even audio. The growing importance and adoption of mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones, and other devices for learning have also made microlearning the appropriate choice for organizations opting for e-learning solutions.

“Owing to the rising penetration of mobile learning in the education sector, there has been a significant increase in the number of mobile applications that enable self-paced e-learning. One such example of microlearning apps is Google's Primer app. This app enables self-paced completion of its modules and teaches new digital marketing skills to learners within a couple of minutes,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on education technology.
