Additional Information explaining the “why”

If there is one thing that Covid has done, it has accelerated the adoption of technology in learning. However, one common challenge we keep hearing about is how hard it is to change mindsets to be willing to go beyond zoom lectures in the digitization of learning. Interestingly when we moved to e-learning over 20 years ago, the idea was to digitize without really applying instructional design methodology to the content. We are hoping to not make that mistake again with the accelerated move towards microlearning. We hope to move beyond just chopping up longer videos and articles into smaller bites by applying the science and research of instructional design.

This is why we have invested the last few years developing a 'Microlearning Instructional Design (MID)' program that consists of a level 1 certification that covers instructional design and microlearning instructional design and a level 2 accreditation program.

In our global efforts to accelerate new digital skills in how to digitize content using microlearning, we decided to earmark 20,000 scholarships to fund the certification of MID level 1.

Our Academic Advisory Council advised us on the methodology and are the signers of our digital certificates: Professor Dominique Turpin (former President of IMD), Professor John J-H Kim from Harvard Business School and Professor Neo Boon Siong (former Dean 2x of Nanyang Business School of NTU).

The response to the scholarship among professors, educators, heads of education, digital learning experts and instructional designers from over 50 countries points to a demand for applying instructional design to technology.
