  1. A much required course

    Much of the learning now-a-days happens through mobiles for professionals and students. So, one needs to know the nitty-gritty of mobile learning and microlearning. This course is a successful start.
    In simple and easy-to-understand language, it explains the terms and concepts associated with this topic. Also, it gives you a clear understanding of when to create a microlearning instructional piece.
    Thank you Purnima and Ruchi.
