Finding time to learn new skills or keep up with advances in your chosen work field is tough, especially for those who work in tech. Thus, some entrepreneurs have introduced learning apps that deliver short, “bite-sized” seminars, lesson plans, and instruction to those too busy to take classes, study, read full-size books or other tracts, or otherwise keep up-to-date with traditional learning.

Blinkist distils the best ideas and insights from more than 1,500 bestselling nonfiction books into 15 minute reads or sound bites. Google Primer delivers five-minute tutorials on the latest information on digital marketing.

With little slow down expected in most people’s busy schedules, such bite-sized learning apps will undoubtedly continue to proliferate.
