What's Adaptive Microlearning?
Adaptive Microlearning combines the science of Adaptive Learning with the delivery mechanism of mobile Microlearning, to deliver training for retention. This is truly individualized learning. Adaptive Microlearning algorithms give each Learner what s/he needs, on a continuous basis. Here's how it works:
The platform's algorithms adjust automatically, re-calibrating every time the Learner is engaged. This is mobile training software designed for learning measurement and individualized learning.
When you talk to traditional eLearning Instructional Designers, the discussion will start with your course content.
When you work with micro-Maestros however, we will start the conversation from the back end. We'll want to talk about the business results you are trying to achieve with your Learning initiative. From those metrics, we can back into how to re-orchestrate your existing course content to achieve your KPI improvements. Learning measurement via Adaptive Microlearning will change the employee behaviors that impact your KPIs.
Adaptive Microlearning Turns "Onboarding" into "Everboarding"
Learning science shows that few learners recall content after a single exposure. They need repeated exposure over time and in different contexts to be able to store new information in long-term memory. Traditional eLearning simply is not designed that way.
Adaptive Microlearning turns onboarding and annual compliance training into "everboarding" -- learning that becomes a continuous process.

Microlearning Reduces Cognitive Load So Learners Can Focus on Training for Retention
Cognitive Load is the amount of mental effort a person has to use to do a task. In a traditional eLearning course for example, a Learner has to find the course in the LMS, figure out how to navigate through it, tune out the beeps and buzzes and flashing animated graphics that are inevitably included and try to focus on the content. For some individuals, the content itself is a heavy cognitive load, especially if it uses too much new jargon or is only available in a foreign language.
Here's how Microlearning cuts the Cognitive Load:

Will Adaptive Microlearning Appeal to a Multi-Generational Workforce?
Yes! Adaptive Mobile Microlearning Delivers the Personalized Learning That Engages Them
Our Adaptive Microlearning works for a multigenerational learner pool. A report by Training Industry found that adult learners’ preferences varied by training topic and purpose — not by age. Across age groups, more than half of learners rated mobile learning and job aids as effective for customer service, onboarding, and technical training.
In a recent LinkedIn study, more than half the respondents (56%) reported that they’re changing policies to increase appeal to a multigenerational workforce — including efforts to retain or lure back older workers. With the youngest cohort of workers projected to make up just over a tenth of the workforce by 2024, according to BLS, companies are trying harder to hold on to Millennial and Gen X workers — those in their 30s, 40s, and 50s — as well.
The Challenge for Employers
When a multigenerational workforce is paired with rapidly changing job needs, finding mobile training software that suits all workers at all ages and experience levels can be a challenge. According to the Deloitte 2019 Global Human Capital Trends report, the challenge is to "integrate ongoing learning into the flow of life — or the flow of work. The solution must not only be embedded into the ways in which we work, but the ways in which we live.”
Designing your content for the Millennials actually meets the needs of all the generations, according to recent studies. Some characteristics that are common across the generations are those supported by Microlearning:
Adaptive Microlearning is the Solution
The platform and Methodology used by micro-Maestros delivers targeted content to each Learner, while identifying and eliminating knowledge gaps. With automated reminders, it nudges Learners to develop and sustain a daily learning habit. The solution's spaced practice feature builds retention, even while the learning is fun and engaging for all generations.
