Navigating between the concepts of ‘eLearning’, ‘Video training’, and ‘Microlearning’ can be a little tricky – we often experience that people do not know the difference and as the words encompass different methods, 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
eLearning is any kind of training delivered through online electronic technologies be it webpages, video, smartphones, MLearning, files, live streaming, etc.
eLearning is the big picture, the watchtower that leads curious learners into the harbor.
Video training is the delivery of training in a video format. That means that everything is based on the 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.
Video is, virtually, for everyone.
Micro Learning & Bite-sized learning
Micro-Learning or bite-sized learning refers to the method of creating courses that are short and delivered as training in small-sized pieces of content. Micro-learning has proved exceptionally valuable because it fits the busy nature of the work environment and the common attention span of the viewer. Micro-learning offers bursts of knowledge that ignites the curious mind.
