Accessing information today is easier than ever, and education must adapt to this. The bite-sized learning modules or e-learning bites are small, yet independently useable information elements. They usually last a few minutes and focus on a strictly defined learning objective. In our Journal post, we summarize what bite-sized learning exactly is, how it works, and how you should start building it.
What is bite-sized learning?
The bite-sized learning principle is very simple. Instead of a long continuous course, the training is broken down into easy-to-process bite-sized pieces. By this method, students have the opportunity to devote even a few minutes of free time to studying, and they can learn easily at their own pace.
Of course, the fact that a course lasts only 5 minutes does not necessarily make it a bite-sized learning module, it rather depends on the learning objective. Unlike traditional courses, which usually try to achieve several learning objectives at once, e-learning courses usually focus on only one key objective. Even reading a blog post or watching a YouTube video can be considered bite-sized learning if it has a specific learning objective.
