In this keynote presentation, microlearning will be discussed from the perspective of a comprehensive framework encompassing the eight critical learning issues of learning including: pedagogical, technological, interface design, evaluation, management, resource support, ethical considerations and institutional. Attributes and Characteristics of microlearning will be discussed. Examples of microlearning in practice will also be demonstrated.
