Snackson’s success lies both in its technical conceptualization and its approach to contents. In the case of microlearning, the impact is clearer: media determines the type of content to show. So, the content is the key (microlearning)
We are aware of these circumstances and we want to get involved so that you find it very easy to start producing microcontents. We are preparing a help, tips and tricks section for the creation of materials that we will be published soon.
Break up with the idea of a guidelined and sequential training
It has been proved that people do not learn in an ordered way, but on the basis of drives and connections with informational hubs.
You should be able to visualize content in a reduced space of time
Always imagine the user in his daily routine: would it be possible to see the content while waiting for the metro?
Customize learning objects as much as you can in a way suitable to your company’s organization.
Content’s main target is to encourage reflection by including help and support strategies so that users can achieve their own goals (instructional scaffolding).
Create useful content
Contents should transfer useful knowledge with a practical sense to users. Present ideas or concepts in a clear and direct way.
Split up content
It is better to split up content into diverse and separate learning objects than saturating one object with lots of information. Remember that content is the key and microcontents can be very useful when transfering knowledge.
If possible, add videos and try their duration does not exceed 2 minutes.
Provide all the necessary information
Make the most of the “supplementary information” section to provide useful information about the content shown.
Combine different formats
Offer content in different formats and mix them: videos, pictures, illustrations, text, questionnaires…
Play with questions
They can be at the beginning, end, or mixed… Creativity to power to ensure interaction!
