Bringing Micro Learning and Active Learning to life – A case study from Excedo

Christoph Grau

Chief Operation Officer, Nikkei FT Learning Ltd

As busy business professionals we all know and understand the challenges faced when learning a new language. We either simply don’t have the time to learn or we don’t feel confident enough in applying what we have learnt in a real-life business context.

Much has been written about Micro Learning and Active Learning as important pedagogical solutions to these problems. However, very few language learning products have applied them effectively in the corporate training context.

Dr. Christoph Grau, the founder of Excedo – a venture from Nikkei and the Financial Times – will share how this team has successfully managed to bring these concepts to life in an exciting new product for developing global communication skills.
