Rapid Learning Institute (RLI) CEO Stephen Meyer authored the cover story for the April issue of Technology Enabled Learning Excellence Essentials. Published by HR.com, the online magazine has a circulation of over 200,000 human resources professionals.
Meyer’s article, entitled “Workplace E-Learning That Sticks,” details how bite-size learning is perfect for engaging modern learners. “Modern learners want to learn differently,” Meyer asserts. With the daily habit of accessing information instantly on the web, modern learners “crave information in short, disjointed bursts, mirroring [their] experiences online.”
Demands on time and attention present additional challenges for training professionals. But rapid learning, or bite-size learning, “tackles these challenges head on,” writes Meyer. “It engages learners and makes training stick.”

Rapid Learning Institute (RLI) provides online training and talent development tools for businesses, government agencies, nonprofits and educational institutions in the areas of sales, leadership and management, human resources, employment law compliance, and workplace safety. RLI’s approach is founded on three core principles: 1) Rapid Learning. Workplace training should be delivered in short bursts – just six to 10 minutes at a time. Today’s multi-tasking workforce has neither the time nor the attention span for traditional lengthy training formats. 2) Single-Concept Learning. People learn best when training is focused on a narrow concept where learning goals are clearly defined. When training is delivered in small packets, the brain can easily absorb, remember and apply what it learns. 3) Research-Based Learning. Training is most powerful when it’s grounded in verifiable research. When learners see training as credible, they’re more likely to translate the learning into on-the-job behavior. RLI’s signature six to 10 minute modules, called Quick Takes, incorporate these three ideas into unique training programs that get results.
Based in Greater Philadelphia, RLI is an operating division of Business 21 Publishing.
