What is Adaptive Microlearning?

This blog series on Adaptive Microlearning explains why this is important, how it works, and what you should know in putting it to work in your organization.

Adaptive Microlearning is the next advance in learning and development. 

Adaptive Microlearning fixes the persistent and hard problems of traditional learning and development of industrial workers: relevance, engagement, retention, and measurable return-on-investment.

Unlike traditional learning and development of industrial workers, Adaptive Microlearning produces competencies and measurable improvements of job cycles, safety and traceability.

Adaptive Microlearning starts with real-time, on-the-job performance support, and works backwards from that completed job with full traceability.

In the process, it captures gray workflow and tribal know-how that we assist you in transforming into a next-generation performance support and learning management system.

SmarTECHS provides software for industrial organizations to begin delivering real-time, on-the-job performance support in a few weeks.

Performance support, training and learning management

Adaptive Microlearning is a turnkey performance-support, training and learning management system

You can integrate it with your existing learning management or remote support center systems, or you can operate Adaptive Microlearning as a standalone system.

In many cases, you can use existing performance support content (manuals, videos, standard operating procedures) in an Adaptive Microlearning environment.

As a software publisher and provider of industrial automation infrastructure, SmarTECHS offers customized bundles of software, services, and infrastructure

Adaptive Microlearning comprises virtual software environments for the continuous on-the-job upskilling and customer/users portal for managing courseware, users and analytics.

We call these virtual environments connected workspaces.

Ready to use anywhere workspaces

Industrial workers, inspectors, contractors, and OEM support specialists can use their personal computers and mobile devices, including hands-free voice-controlled headmouted computers, to access their adaptive microlearning workspaces.

Adaptive microlearning workspaces constitute a safe and immersive augmented-reality experience and toolkit for industrial workers.

Virtualizes traditional training, mentoring, and work orders

Adaptive Microlearning virtualizes training and mentoring

This represents a fusion of digital technologies with real-world work orders and human interaction, using the power of 

  • Digital connectivity: WiFi, 3G, 4G, 5G, Bluetooth and USB
  • SmarTECHS mobile software apps: Remote Expertise Networks, Responsive Inspections, Adaptive Microlearning
  • Collaboration and communication: See what I see video and screensharing
  • Multimedia content capture and processing, and
  • Short-form lessons and job-cycle refreshers

Reuse or transmediate legacy content

In many cases, you can redeploy existing publications, technical drawings, videos and digital tools in Adaptive Microlearning workspaces.

In other cases, you may need to edit long-form videos into short two-minute segments. Or you may need to convert long text-heavy PDFs into several smaller primers or booklets, adding explainer or how-to videos and interactive data-collection worksheets.

To speed the introduction of Adaptive Microlearning in your organization, SmarTECHS can advise or take on the task of redeploying legacy content or transmediating into short-form lessons and performance support materials.

SmarTECHS can also advise or take on the prototyping, testing and production of new microlessons.
