## Grovo
WIP- [Grovo](https://www.grovo.com/) is a Learning Management System (LMS) with a focus on Internet Education. Grovo delivers, short, engaging learning moments called [microlearning](https://www.grovo.com/microlearning). We will be putting together modules specifically designed for Managers and Individual Contributors, to be able to learn at your own pace, using videos, short assessments and real-world practice exercises.
[Grovo](https://www.grovo.com/) is a Learning Management System (LMS) that delivers, short, engaging learning tracks which are groups of video lessons and quizzes focused on a skill. Finishing the lessons and quizzes in a learning track earns you points and certifications. Whether you're on your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone, you can pick up where you left off at any time. A big part of how this learning is delivered is by using a method called Microlearning.
WIP - implement Grovo before year end.
### What is Microlearning?
Microlearning provides short bursts of information that can be applied right away, helping people build the skills they need to be successful at their jobs.
Think of these bite-size pieces of learning like sentences: each conveys just one complete thought, but when you put a few of them together, you build a more complex idea.
Each microlearning moment is made of a digestible morsel of information combined with a short practice exercise.
It's hyper specific, so you can get the right help, right when you need it: like when composing an email, working with new spreadsheet software, or practicing a big speech.
Bit by bit, these microlearning moments add up to better job performance today and continual improvement going forward.
Microlearning isn't just breaking up content into smaller pieces.
It's a way to make learning digestible and effective, transforming not just what you know, but what you actually do, every day.
### Grovo at GitLab
We're a remote and globally distributed team that requires something more than the traditional learning approaches and courses that currently exist. We want to foster a new way of learning that mirrors GitLab's culture.
Take a coffee break with Grovo and see how much you can learn. It can take just under 60 seconds to sharpen your skills!
The initial phase of rolling out Grovo will take place in December 2016 and as part of that first step we will be offering learning tracks on professional development & compliance.
