Microlearning at lightning speed

Is it possible to accelerate learning? It is, with the new microlearning approach.

Technology and job functions are changing rapidly. In today’s fast-paced digital environment, people need to constantly up-skill, but have little time to learn. Microlearning offers us a solution. Microlearning is a modular delivery approach to online training where content is engineered into a series of short, concise, and dynamic learning moments, each a complete experience on its own while supporting the learning sequence as a whole.


Did you know the human brain’s short-term memory can only hold roughly seven pieces of information at any given time? Consequently, our brains forget a lot—and forget it quickly. That’s why microlearning courses are so handy and can be used very effectively to create sticky learning experiences.

Understanding this, THORS has designed new Lightning Learning courses for the manufacturing industry, based on the microlearning approach. Our offerings include the following:



Quality professionals have many names for the seven basic tools of quality, first emphasized by Kaoru Ishikawa, a professor of Engineering at Tokyo University. The 7QC tools, comprised of simple graphical and statistical techniques, are helpful in solving critical quality-related issues. Our lightning learning courses in this area are designed to ensure the learner grasps these fundamentals very quickly.

Our picks: Fishbone Diagrams, Check Sheets, Stratification, and Pareto Charts



No, not the ones you wear as an accessory!
