Optimizing microlearning materials for mobile learning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters

Abstract

Microlearning, delivered through mobile devices, can increase levels of interactivity and engagement by using high-impact learning strategies in media-rich environments. Podcasts, slide presentations, infographics, videos, flashcards, and collaborative spaces are all suitable delivery tools with which one may create engaging learning experiences. Today’s learners are social, mobile, global, digital, and visual. They embrace the possibilities of technology to facilitate their learning. As a result, microlearning is able to leverage familiar, modern learning technology in short bursts to motivate and engage learners while they are on the go. This chapter provides suggestions for practical strategies, tools, and best practices in multimedia design. In doing so, it aims to help educators and learning professionals create and deliver microlearning mechanisms that are optimized for mobile learning. Copyright © 2021 Taylor & Francis.
