Training Down to a Science

Proven science drives the choices we make when we write a script, design a course, or roll out new features to our HSI LMS. Learn more below about the science of microlearning, the Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve, saccadic bilateral eye movements, and cognitive load theory.

Science of Microlearning

Research shows employees get interrupted every 11 minutes. That's why our courses average 7:12.

Microlearning is a hot topic in the training industry but it's more than a buzzword. Read more in our white paper on the Science of Microlearning.


Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve

This well-known mathematical formula describes the rate at which learned material is eventually forgotten.

Learn how to fight the Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve in our blog.


Saccadic Bilateral Eye Movements

The motion and pace of eye movement across the screen supports information being saved into memory.

This explains the placement and rhythm of graphics that appear on the screen in our videos. So, pay attention as you compare different video styles and watch how much time passes and nothing changes on the screen.

We give you more tips on how to compare training videos in our blog.


Cognitive Load Theory

The human brain can only process so much information at a time before it is forgotten or moved to long-term memory. Cognitive load is an important concept in instructional design and how we create our employee training and development videos.

This supports our approach to microlearning and how we batch content into bite-sized bits.

Hear from one of our clients who came to us specifically for our microlearning content in this case study on Brewer Science.
