Are you looking for a tool to help you create and deliver tailored microlearning programs to your workforce? 

The market is saturated with new platforms promising to provide clever new ways of sharing training content with learners, but it can be difficult to know which ones are worth their weight.

Luckily, we’ve done the hard bit for you. Here are the top microlearning platforms for 2022, the features they offer and which companies’ they are most optimized for. 


What is microlearning?

Microlearning is a new way of delivering information to learners which seeks to replicate our existing habits of consuming content online.

Much like the short bursts of information we see on our Twitter feeds and smartphone notifications, microlearning delivers bite-sized chunks of information to learners right at the point of need.

It’s for this reason that microlearning is often delivered in tandem with mobile-friendly formats and gamification, seeking to make workforce training as engaging as possible.

Why should I be using a microlearning platform?

Modern workers have just 1% of their time set aside for learning and development in any working week. With a workforce this time-poor, it’s crucial that every learner is given information that is as concise, relevant and engaging as possible.

The microlearning approach has also been proven to improve knowledge retention and reduce cognitive load, meaning your learning strategy will be more effective in empowering learners to perform at their best. 

Top microlearning platforms for 2022

Now that you know the benefits that microlearning has to offer, here are our top recommended platforms to level up your learning strategy for 2022.
