How long should a learning session be

In 2012, Google conducted a study titled: The New Multi-Screen World: Understanding Cross-Platform Consumer Behavior. This study highlighted the rapidly increasing use of various devices in our everyday lives to complete tasks (including learning initiatives).

The top-three devices we are connected to on a daily basis include:

  1. PC/Laptop: 39 minutes spent per action
  2. Tablet: 30 minutes spent per action
  3. Smartphone: 17 minutes spent per action

So if you are considering putting your 2 hour lecture online without editing for your students to watch or perhaps that really interesting 80 page government document without guidance as to the essential sections then you may have to think again.
