Using PowerPoint to Create Microlearning | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"Microlearning has become a popular digital learning strategy for corporations, and even small- and medium-sized companies are trying to implement microlearning in their employee learning and development programs. However, a lot of companies hesitate to implement microlearning as they are under the impression that it is difficult to create and that it requires special software and a large investment. None of that is true. Microlearning is easier to create than conventional online learning, requires virtually no extra investment other than what you’ve already invested in your digital learning setup, and is developed with the simplest of software."
