Welcome to our Open Educational Resource of Microlearning. Our focus for the week is microlearning in the workforce and in higher learning. We’ve all used microlearning in some aspects in our work, or in our hobbies. Our world is changing fast and requires us to learn quickly and apply it immediately.
We kindly ask that you download the application EdApp, create a profile, and access our course using the invite code “#etec522micro”. Alternatively, you can also create a profile and use EdApp on your desktop. We invite you to participate daily as we have a brief module each day.
Please save the date!
This Thursday June 17th at 5:00pm-6:00 PM PST we will have a live chat with Microlearning expert Shannon Tipton on Twitter- use #ETEC522micro. You can also follow and tag her @stipton
What questions would you like to ask Shannon about microlearning and her entrepreneur journey?
If you can’t attend and would like us to ask questions on your behalf, feel free to post ahead of time on EdApp.
Here’s the suggested schedule, but feel free to go at your own pace:
Sunday – OER Launch, Course Introduction, and Meet the Team
Monday – What is Microlearning?
