We often experience that people do not know the difference and as the words encompass different methods. Here, we’ll try to explain them here in a short and orderly fashion, so you enlightened can get back to managing your business.

eLearning: The Overall Word for Online Training

This is basically any kind of training delivered through online electronic technologies be it webpages, video, smartphones, m-Learning, files, live streaming, etc.

eLearning is the big picture, the watchtower that leads curious learners into the harbor.    

Video Training

Video training is the delivery of training in a video format. That means that everything is based on videos.

Information can be condensed using video, and therefore leaves less of a cognitive load on your learners and helps them quickly and easily to digest your content.

This learning type is, virtually, for everyone.

Microlearning & Bite-Sized Learning

Bite-sized learning or microlearning refers to the method of creating courses that are short and delivered in small pieces of content. Microlearning has proved exceptionally valuable because it fits the busy nature of today’s work environment and the short attention span of viewers. Microlearning offers bursts of knowledge that ignites the curious mind.
