What are the Fundamental Units of Learning?

What are the smallest units of learning/teaching?   So small that we’re skeptical. So small that we're not sure who's responsible for developing, supporting them?

Digital Flashcards, Mobile Devices, and Beyond


  • Which features are essential, possible, absurd: Is "Snackable Learning" interstitial, subliminal, surreptitious, tachistoscopic,….?
  • What is an example from an undergraduate course?  An item that most students could learn adequately in at most 1 hour spread over 1 week?  How? 
  • When and where do students who hold jobs of 20-40 hours/week learn, study? (During their jobs?  In their workplace? When commuting? When driving? Shamefully, shamelessly, proudly?)

Is “snackable learning” only, or mostly, for students who have full-time jobs?  Are tech-facile? e.g.,

“I was able to complete lessons with one hand while holding groceries and hopping between buses in San Francisco. Being able to learn on-the-go makes a huge difference for people who have full-time jobs. The pressure of finding time to learn didn't constantly loom over me: when I had some free moments or wanted to break from work, I'd open the Udacity app.”
