Short amounts of time = Micromoments

Microlearning continues to be a popular learning trend because it's just plain convenient.

The convenience of microlearning is based on the concept of using short amounts of time to study small amounts of content. 

You may find it convenient to fit short micromoments for learning into your busy daily schedule.

With SpeakToYourMind, you can create your own convenient learning micromoments.




Small amounts of content = Microcontent
