This purpose of this report is to explore research relating to the term microlearning through the creation of a series of animated videos designed in a microlearning-friendly format. Microlearning is an emerging paradigm that addresses a learner’s need to receive the information they need, when they need it, and in the appropriate context. Each video in the series explores a different area of microlearning – introducing and defining the term, highlighting modern examples, describing why it is gaining popularity, outlining the affordances, tracing the roots and evolution, as well as outlining the requirements of a microlearning experience.
