The recent COVID-19 pandemic has put additional demands on Higher Education institutions around the globe. In January 2020, universities in China were forced to plan for Emergency Remote Teaching (ERT). Many Sino-foreign institutions responded in a proactive way seeing this difficult situation as an opportunity to transform their teaching and learning environment. Microlearning was one of the new exciting tools trialled at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC) thanks to the flexibility and freedom it offers to the student. Using three case studies from undergraduate Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) courses paired with anecdotes from their creators and their students, this chapter evaluates microlearning and outlines the potential application of this approach universally in the HE setting.
