Foundation for Microlearning 

Microlearning is designed to deal with the fast pace demanded by millennials, who will make up 75% of the workforce by 2025.  It is a way of teaching and delivering content to learners in small, very specific bursts, where the learners are in control of what and when they’re learning.

Microlearning helps to build up knowledge over time and produce real behavior change that results in improved job performance.  Key features:

·         Employees as accountable owners of professional development:  Microlearning works very well in learning communities that position employees as owners of their professional development needs.  With encouragement and guidance from their managers, they take accountability for learning what they need to become continually more effective at their work.


·         Their success is yours: Starmind enables you to tap the expertise of your best and brightest to help others excel.  More important it enables you to measure the value of that shared knowledge and solutions, enabling you to identify and reinforce sharing of expertise.


·         Real-time and just-in-time: Starmind helps your people use microlearning to gain knowledge and skills exactly when they need it – on the job.


·         Increase “Reach and ROI”: Dramatically increase the reach of your training efforts by changing the learning paradigm.  When everyone can share knowledge, and everyone has access to knowledge, everyone is a teacher or a student, depending on the day and the needs at hand.


·         Drive simplification and help rapid action/ problem solving teams get there faster: By making it both easier and faster, to obtain solutions and answers to questions, Starmind facilitates both simplification and accelerated results.


How Starmind enables user-centered microlearning:

1.    Learner identifies learning target:

  • A question for which you need the answer

  • A problem in need of a solution

  • A place where you’re “stuck”

  • How to do something you’ve never done before

  • Need a resource to support a project

2.    Ask the question/pose the problem

3.    Apply the response/solution immediately on the job

4.    Measure the results (i.e., how useful was it?)

5.    Say “thanks”; recognize the people sharing knowledge

How does it work?  Easy as 1-2-3:

1.    User set-up is used to give people access to the Starmind system and, by asking users what they do, sets up the baseline for question recipients

2.    If needed, seed the system with representative questions (i.e., topics or problems often asked about in the organization)

3.    Then simply let people use it and watch the organization brain grow:

a.     Ask a question/pose a problem.

b.    If your question has been asked and answered before, you get your answer immediately (could be an answer, a solution, a link, a referral, etc.)

c.     If not, it goes to the person best equipped to answer it

d.    You get your answer and apply it accordingly

e.    Assess the value and timeliness of the answer/solution

f.      If no one answers your question, it’s captured as a “white spot” or knowledge gap.

g.    Questions, answers and value of answers stored for later use
