With microlearning being arguably the hottest trend in training and development, many learning professionals are trying to implement a strategy into their organizations. Far too often implementation fails because there is more than just micro-videos that needs to happen. What we learned is, if you build it they won't just come. Learn from our mistakes and ultimately how we were able to achieve success across a 5000 person organization!

This session is focused on how to implement a microlearning strategy vs the technical aspects of how to create microlearning videos. Our story was featured recently in Effective Training: Systems, Strategies and Practices 6th Edition, a college text. 

During this session, we look at our organization's impetus for changing, our learning delivery methods and how we determined that microlearning was a strategy to pursue. We also look at various pain points and failures along the way, pointing out specific action items that needed to happen along the transformation into microlearning as a viable and successful medium. 

This session focuses on how to achieve stakeholder buy-in at the executive level when in the past training mediums only consisted of webinars and eLearning. Initially, our senior leaders were very apprehensive in allowing this medium as a solution. We address this and the direct steps on how we overcame this obstacle. We show specifically how we socialized the projects.

In the second half of our presentation, we discuss the importance of partnering with marketing and communication and what the could look like, in order to achieve success. Learning from our numerous failures and, ultimately, how we created a launch plan for future trainings and projects. We also focus on various options for technology (Youtube, Vimeo) and some of the pros and cons of each such as measuring, metrics and ROI considerations. 


Adam Costakes
, AVP talent development at Caliber, has been in the learning and development space for the last 15 years. He currently leads a training department consisting of 17 trainers/instructional designers for Caliber Home Loans. He is responsible for roughly 3,500 employees' training needs across four main business verticals. Training consists of of systems training, onboarding, compliance, new products, soft skills, and includes external client trainings. Adam's background is centered in the banking and the financial sector, with a large component focused on mortgage origination. 

Dan Hirt grew up surrounded by Canadian farmland. College years upon him, Dan became interested in learning about learning itself, and a training and development course in university gave him a glimpse of a career that he would realize, years later. After five years of career boredom, Dan pursued and education in L&D. It was during this education that he started his podcast, which let him explore and discuss at least a handful of learning concepts. Many of those ideas would find their way into mortgage origination training, as he was hired by a regional Michigan bank and eventually took responsibility for the wholesale sales onboarding training. A move to the Lone Star state let him take on a similar role, and allowed for exploring the microlearning landscape. Starting a microlearning platform for wholesale clients was just the start of this educational experience.
