The advantages of microlearning.

Traditional training methods are failing our employees and trainers. Week-long courses and clunky online training programs no longer engage learners well enough to improve job performance. On average, learners forget 90% of what they’ve been taught within a year.

Microlearning isn’t just short. It’s smart, too.

Microlearning isn’t just short. It’s smart, too.

At Grovo, we build comprehensive learning programs around hundreds of topics. We start with fundamentals and gradually build up to expert-level tips and techniques. This way, we meet learners where they are and help them work toward mastery, step by step.

Microlearning is perfect for busy, distracted 21st century learners. It lessens learner’s cognitive load with:

  • Short, engaging videos
  • Point-of-need availability
  • Quick, targeted assessments

This way, learners get 4-5 takeaways per session instead of forgetting virtually everything within a matter of months.
