Fifteen models for micro-learning

Certificate Overview

Learners and managers are demanding more effective and efficient learning times due to rapidly changing topics, on-the-job performance needs, an abundance of mobile learning tools and faster and more reliable Internet connections. This interactive certificate invites you to "rethink" and "invigorate" the design of your current content for faster development and easier learning suited for those who are on-the-move, on-the-job and connected with mobile technologies. We'll examine the methods of micro-learning content design and delivery that facilitates quick transfer of knowledge and application. This certificate is appropriate for those who design and implement rapid eLearning, mobile learning, performance support learning, and collaborative learning environments.



This is not a software course. This certificate is not about authoring and mobile software. It focuses on content development, design and delivery. It does not promote a singular product, but rather uses multiple products for illustration purposes. The course will focus on elearning and performance support systems rather than classroom training.

 

Bonus Items: You will receive a FREE copy of Ray's book 3-Minute eLearning: Micro-Learning Design and Development. You'll also receive 15 models for micro-learning: live demos and examples that you may download and own as part of your in-house references.

 

Prerequisites: The certificate is suited to those who wish to design their content into smaller chunks and micro-learning for faster and cheaper design and delivery. This certificate focuses on elearning and performance support systems rather than classroom training.

 

Who Should Attend: This certificate is appropriate for subject matter experts, training designers, and elearning designers and developers. Note: This certificate focuses on elearning and performance support systems rather than classroom training.

What Others are Saying

What Others Are Saying

This certificate is simply brilliant. If you really think about training from a learner perspective, you quickly realize that the concepts shared in this certificate are so simple and obvious - common sense really - yet they've managed to escape the attention of most learning experts, developers, and trainers for decades! Ray Jimenez is opening our eyes to a whole new way of delivering training that instantly draws the learner in, keeps them enthralled to the end, and allows them to learn without even realizing they're being taught!

Coming from a content-driven organization, this certificate provided some great tools to shift thinking towards concerns and must-learns. I learned ways to provide training in a digestible format that involves the learner rather than handing them content.
