What is MicroLearning?

3 MikroLernen

1. A different form of learning

MicroLearning assumes that time is neither a valid indicator of how much learning is done nor that long time is required to get results.

Life is not like school with fixed times and hours set aside for learning. People have little time to learn.

EduTech has to adjust to people, not the other way round. MicroLearning offers an answer. Break down content into small units – and use time flexibly, in short activities.


2. MicroContent assists

MicroLearning uses technology to support learners, so that they can learn regularly and step by step. Static macrostructures are dissolved, and learning can be done in between.


3. MicroLearning as a didactical concept

»Integrated MicroLearning« is a didactical concept developed by the Research Studio Austria FG to make learning easier, use the frequent changing of activities and employ MicroContent as a foundation for knowledge building and management.

We have developed the concept and the technology into a market ready application called KnowledgeFox®

MicroLearning 8.0 – 2016 is presenting approaches, projects and solutions for medical training, educational institutions and lifelong learning in health care professions.

We look forward to meeting you in Graz!


MicroLearning – a digital approach …

… Closing knowledge gaps. Lots of material has to be learned and the time available seems much too limited. Why? Too little time and too much information. MicroLearning structures learning into short activities.

MicroLearning – the propositional design…

… Supporting cognitive learning.
Reduce rhetoric and unnecessary text and focus on content on its propositional essence. MicroLearning uses technological support to call for less rather than more work by the learner, but also more regular learning.

Along with “Mobile Learning”, “Rapid Learning” or “Workflow-integrated Learning” merge to meet the challenges of design of learning applications and strategies in formal and informal contexts.
