Combining Microlearning with Nudge Theory in E-Learning Solutions

June 06, 2021

When traditional training is conducted, not everyone in the group is satisfied with the training methodology. It becomes difficult for certain professionals to understand the complex nature and the technicalities of the concept. These professionals find it difficult to absorb certain concepts that have been explained. Importantly, the concepts are explained in a span of two hours to 4 hours. Thus, it becomes difficult for the learners to cramp all the knowledge in the mind within that period. This is not only the problem with professionals at the central office but also with the workforce in other branches. The recorded videos of the lectures are sent to the workforce for upgrading their knowledge and skills. This is where corporate e-learning companies who create e-learning solutions can turn out to be a savior.

What is an e-learning solution?

E-learning courseware contains animation, simulations, progress track reports, and tests. The animation is used to make the learners understand the topic. Using animation, an explanation of the topic can be done using three-dimensional graphics. In addition to three-dimensional figures, there are also two-dimensional figures. The simulation is used for understanding various cases involved in the work processes. A progress tracker report gives an idea about how a learner is performing. It gives a detailed understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the candidates. Tests are conducted to understand how much a candidate has understood a subject.

Simplifying the content with Micro-learning

The e-learning solutions simplify the content by combining various techniques. The content development companies use microlearning methodology; nudge theory and multimedia content in e-learning courseware. 

Micro-learning with animated content:

The Micro-learning concept involves an explanation of the content in the form of small modules. Using Microlearning methodology, content is broken down into small modules, of about 5 to 10 minutes duration. The content is explained in detail with less technical words or complicated language. This helps the learners to absorb the content easily. Importantly, each learning module contains graphical educational videos, animations, and short simulations. Additionally, it has plenty of diagrams with short text explanations. 

More about Microlearning content

Each module is created to suit a learner's learning style, pace, and time convenience. This form of customization helps the learning courseware to turn into easily absorbable content. When animated video content is combined with the micro-learning learning methodology, the learners get a comprehensive view of the concept. This way they have control over what they learn. They also find the learning content appealing and engrossing.

Nudge theory:

Nudge theory pushes the learners to revise constantly. The concepts are based on what was taught to them during the training session. The learners are pinged about various questions, at different time intervals. These questions may be based on real-life scenario questions. Thus, the Nudge form of learning helps in the recollection of learned knowledge. 

VKCL’s e-learning solutions 

VK Creative learning (VKCL) creates e-learning solutions for various industries, based on micro-learning methodology and nudge theory. It has assisted many organizations to increase their productivity by using both techniques. It has more than 10 years of experience in the e-learning space. It is known for creating e-learning courses based on the exact requirements of the organization.
