Microlearning and the Knowledge Maturing Process : Towards Conceptual Foundations for Work-Integrated Microlearning Support

  title={Microlearning and the Knowledge Maturing Process : Towards Conceptual Foundations for Work-Integrated Microlearning Support},
  author={Andreas P. Schmidt},
As a response to the new flexibility in work environments, work-integrated learning on demand is an appropriate form of learning which is in line with microlearning ideas. But in a world of microcontent, we need to consider that not all content is appropriate for everybody. The knowledge maturing process allows for distinguishing between different levels of maturity, and technical learning support based on the maturity level can provide automated guidance to make microlearning more efficient.

Enabling Learning on Demand in Semantic Work Environments: The Learning in Process Approach

The new flexibility of workers and work environments makes traditional conceptions of training in advance, in rather large units and separate from work activities, more and more obsolete. It is not

Towards Co-Creation of Learning material in Vocational Training

This work derived requirements from theory as well as from a focus group workshop and a work process analysis to develop design elements for a co-creation process by enabling employees to generate the materials independently during the work process.

Vocational Training With Microlearning—How Low-Immersive 360-Degree Learning Environments Support Work-Process-Integrated Learning

A 360-degree learning system is developed to demonstrate a realistic work environment and overcome the lack of design knowledge supporting the motivation and performance of employees using such systems.

Designing a Co-creation System for the Development of Work-process-related Learning Material in Manufacturing

This study contributes to research and practice by proposing novel design principles for supporting employees in peer creation processes and reveals how co-creation systems can support the collaborative development of learning materials in the work process.

Framing Faculty Development as Workplace Learning

Higher-education faculty, like most workers, develop knowledge and skills for their job mostly through informal learning during work. In contrast, centers for teaching and learning traditionally

Adaptive system of web-based teaching

The study deals with the creation of an adaptive system of web-based teaching. The principles put into the concept of such a system development are formulated. The structure of the system which

Novel online video model for learning information technology based on micro learning and multimedia micro content

The proposed video model proved itself efficient in the development of practice and application-level skills and was able to create satisfactory learning outcomes in 80.30% of the participants.

Knowledge Maturing and the Continuity of Context as a Unifying Concept for Knowledge Management and E-Learning

In this paper, a knowledge maturing process is presented to illustrate the change of nature and the discontinuities, and the consideration of context is proposed, which offers the required continuity.

Characterizing Knowledge Maturing

The knowledge maturing process is presented as a conceptual model for explaining and analyzing disruptions in the inter-individual flow of knowledge within organizations.

Using Workflow , User Modeling and Tutoring Strategies for Just-intime Document Delivery

A smart personal assistant which delivers training documents to its user in a just-in-time manner and user-modelling is incorporated into the system to ensure that redundant or previously known information is not delivered, thereby reducing the problem of information overload.

Attention metadata in knowledge and learning management

The paper outlines how attention metadata enables a tight integration between organisational knowledge stores and human resource management on the one hand and learning management system in corporate

Context-Aware Workplace Learning Support: Concept, Experiences, and Remaining Challenges

The concept of context-steered learning is described, both from a content-driven and communication-driven perspective, and corresponding system functionality primitives are presented.

The design of browsing and berrypicking techniques for the online search interface

A new model of searching in online and other information systems, called ‘berrypicking’, is discussed, which is much closer to the real behavior of information searchers than the traditional model of information retrieval is and will guide the thinking better in the design of effective interfaces.
