Actuate Custom Video Microlearning Development

How to create digital learning content that the modern-day learner is excited to engage with (and loves).

Why eLearning initiatives often fail

Most eLearning content being offered today – the traditional click-based/ interactive content – is not optimised for the content consumption habits of the modern-day learner.

Little wonder then that organisations struggle to ensure e-learning offtake and user engagement with their LMS.

What the modern-day learner wants (it’s what we’ve mastered)

Over the last decade of our existence, Actuate Microlearning has spent time studying modern learners’ content consumption habits. Here’s what we’ve found they look for in their learning content:

Bite-sized modules

3 to 8-minute long modules, structured together to form a course. Four minutes is the sweet spot, we have found.

Multi-device compatible content, with an emphasis on smartphones

Learners who own them, consume content across device types, with a preference for smartphones.

Engaging writing

Even well-crafted visuals if accompanying poor and uninspiring writing will lead to learners tuning out. Great writing must necessarily precede engaging video development.

Visual (ideally, video) format

Video is the format of choice for people today. One billion hours of video content is consumed on YouTube, everyday. Learning content, if it is to be taken seriously by the learner, must be in video (the best option), slideshows (with a minimalistic design) and infographics formats.

Gamified courses

Content must include elements of gamification to ensure learner engagement.

Our study of the modern-day learner’s content consumption habits has informed our ability to create visually stunning video format microlearning courses, preceded by engaging scriptwriting, into an art form!
