Longer is not always better. We see this in many situations.
We can enjoy a trip from London to New York City by cruise ship but it will take much longer than a short airplane ride. If time is important, the ship option is not practical.
Our learning experience is the same. A long, drawn-out class may provide much content with examples. If time is limited and results are needed now, several bite-size learning modules can deliver the required information. It can be reviewed again as needed to maximize the absorption and understanding of information for the task.
Breaking content down into smaller segments allows the learner to quickly access the piece they need now. The other content may not be necessary at the moment and will only get in the way.
Designing learning to be more digestible and available is important in our continuing efforts. It is easier to fit short learning moments into our busy schedules. A bite-size module will not overload the brain and can stay focused on a common message.
The key objective is to bridge from content to context. When the material can be accessed at the moment it is needed, it can quickly be applied in the proper context to make it more relevant and useful.
Learning Elevated can help you design short learning segments. Join the bite-size revolution.
