ECIS 2020 Research Papers


Short learning formats such as micro learning are well suited to meeting the growing learning needs created by increasing digitalization. With the help of learning content that is limited in terms of time and content, learners can retrieve information in a demand-oriented and situation-specific manner and acquire knowledge to enable them to adapt to changed circumstances at short notice. However, due to its limited length and content, micro learning is not suitable for developing all types of competences. In this research paper, we present the results of a structured literature review and the empirical results of an interview study. We conducted interviews with 33 experts who are in charge of the design of learning content at enterprises and instructional designers concerning the competences that can be developed using micro learning in enterprises. We identified six different competences that are suitable for development through micro learning: action competence, professional competence, linguistic competence, self-learning competence, social competence, and digital competence. For IS Education, the findings demonstrate the potential learning outcomes using micro learning.
