And the best part is – no more snoozing at the end of the lecture – you will be energized & ready for more after each lesson.
Microlearning is a teaching method that breaks down content into small, digestible chunks. These chunks are usually 3-10 minutes long and can stand alone or be connected. It is designed to reduce learner fatigue and improve information retention.
Microlearning has become popular due to the growth of social media and the use of smartphones as people can learn on the go, wherever they are and whenever they have some time available.
Microlearning is popular in online travel education for several reasons:
- Quick & Simple
The average microlearning lesson duration is 5-10 minutes. For example, a short video tutorial on how to pack a suitcase may be only 2-3 minutes long. On the other hand, a gamified lesson on travel planning and booking maybe 10-15 minutes long.
Microlearning lessons are to the point and contain actionable information that you can use immediately. This helps you to stay engaged and avoid information overload.
For example, a Trip Planning module can be broken down into 5-7 learning units like Choosing a destination, Setting a budget, Booking flights and accommodation, Planning an itinerary, Obtaining a visa, etc. Each unit may be further broken down into shorter lessons if required.
3. Engaging and Interactive
It uses storytelling, humor, games, and other techniques to keep learners interested and motivated. The information is presented using different formats that are best suited for the topic. These include:
- Video tutorials
- Interactive quizzes
- Gamified lessons
- Podcasts & Webinars
Microlearning programs are often priced on a per-course or per-module basis. This gives you the flexibility to choose the courses and modules that are most relevant to your needs and budget. The average cost is typically between Rs 100 and Rs. 500 per module. The more specialized modules can cost Rs.1,000 or more.
Some of the most popular microlearning travel modules are:
- Travel planning to choose a destination or how to pack a suitcase.

- Travel safety on how to avoid scams and how to deal with emergencies
