Of course, near-instantaneous knowledge transfer may sound too good to be true. Can learning really happen in 5-minute increments? The answer is yes, but there are caveats. For the learning to be effective, HR and training professionals must carefully craft their offerings and understand that not all training and development can happen on the fly. Microlearning is best leveraged to supplement and reinforce what employees already know.
I can’t be the only one to think that this is a very bad idea.
