What Content Curation, Chunking Information and Micro-learning have in common?

What Content Curation, Chunking Information and Micro-learning have in common? | Innovative Instructional Design | Scoop.it
In this article I’ll present a framework that could help educators to make a shift from designing long, information based online courses to micro-learning, which is a result of content curation techniques and chunking information design strategy.

Creating bite-sized chunks for reflection and reinforcement can be powerful. The challenge? Getting learners used to only accessing an LMS for their learning needs to see that micro-learning fits into their workflow and has a powerful WIFM.
