Drip Training & Microlearning Modules

Short. Convenient. Effective.

Do you want your fleet drivers to remember safety information after the training?

Do you want to improve training participation?

Do you want to increase your Return on Investment (ROI)?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you should incorporate Drip Training Micro Modules into your fleet driver safety training strategy today.

What is Drip Training? 

Over time, information covered during driver training can begin to fade. This effect is called the forgetting curve. Nearly 75% of what was learned during a training session may be forgotten within one month.

By re-engaging with important course content days, weeks, or months after completing the defensive driving course, learners can retain more information.

The Drip Training method releases additional training opportunities at scheduled times after the initial course completion. This steady stream of information keeps important safety tips and techniques top-of-mind when your drivers are behind the wheel.

Only $18.95 per course with a minimum of 10 courses.

What are Microlearning Modules?

A Micro Module is a short, focused training component developed to meet a specific learning objective. These bite-sized learning modules cover a single topic to help drivers avoid information overload.

Your employees can dedicate their full attention to learn about a particular safety procedure, driving technique, or accident prevention tip.

DriveSafe Online Microlearning Modules include:

  • full-screen video
  • an interactive scenario or animated graphic to support key road safety concepts
  • quiz questions to reinforce retention

How long is a Microlearning Module?

The duration of a DriveSafe Online defensive driving Microlearning Module averages five (5) to seven (7) minutes. Drivers can easily review one or more modules without impacting their regular workday responsibilities.

Who should use MicroLearning Modules?

If your company has a light-duty fleet comprised of work trucks, vans, sedans, and pickup trucks, you should use Micro Modules. Foster a safe driving culture at work to prepare your drivers for road hazards and protect your investment with effective training that lasts.

If your organization includes a Grey Fleet where team members use their own vehicles to conduct business, you should use MicroLearning Modules. Teach drivers how to reduce risk when traveling on city streets, rural roads, and state highways.

A single Micro Module can be used to emphasize a specific driving-related topic. Multiple MicroLearning Modules can be used as targeted training for drivers who need to modify poor driving behavior. The full MicroLearning Module library can be used as continuing education after drivers complete the DriveSafe Online defensive driving course.

How do I use Microlearning Modules for training?

Micro Modules support the full driver safety course. After your drivers complete a DriveSafe Online defensive driving course, Micro Modules are made available to reinforce key concepts they learned in the main course.

You can choose the Drip Training method and release the modules at scheduled intervals. You can target specific modules for individuals who may need additional training to correct poor driving behavior. Or you can make all the Micro Modules available at once to create a just-in-time learning library for your drivers.

It really works! The DriveSafe Online development team has a wealth of experience using the Drip Training method. During the past decade, we’ve worked with our colleague and learning theory expert Dr. Will Thalheimer to promote effective online learning experiences.

You can read about Dr. Thalheimer’s research to better understand how Drip Training (also called spaced learning) is an important and effective training strategy
