Didactics of Microlearning

Front Cover
Waxmann Verlag, 2007
This book is a comprehensive and articulate intorduction to the emerging field of microlearning. In public institutions, in small and medium-sized enterprises and in informal contexts we are all dealing with increasingly complex learning requirements, more fragmented knowledge, demands for greater cultural flexibility, and rapid technological change. As a result, new approaches are required, focusing on microcontent, medial fluency and spaces of learning.
