I wish we in ISD were much more concerned w/ impact versus length.
Size matters indeed. But 2 hr modules reduced to 1 hr modules reduced to bite-sized modules – isn’t the same as Right-Sized modular content, including Performance Support, that enables Measured Results in on-the-job Performance capability.
Sometimes the content can be micro. And other times that might be insufficient when it comes to being Effective.
The 2 Hour Trap
I always cringe when I see or hear about a Curriculum or a Collection or a Path of 2 hour modules. Or when they’re all 1 hour.
WHAT A COINCIDENCE!!! (Buy a Lottery Ticket because something is going on!)
And … Modules of some magical, common length are not the answer. Modular Content probably is. For First/Initial Learning and spaced Follow-Up/Reinforcement – which is sometimes micro in my view. Unless of course the job itself reinforces it well enough, often enough, to get the job done.
Achieving Performance Competence.
Via an Engineering/Architectural approach … IMO/IMExperience.
