Nano Learning: Designing Content for the Nano World

What is the equivalent of Nano-Technology in the Learning world? Nano means small or miniature. Most of our learning design is for medium to large size events and projects. A day long class, an hour long e-Learning module. Yet, most learners need small and very personalized learning moments throughout the course of a day, week, month of year.

How can we add the wisdom of instructional design and/or performance support to small and very targeted projects? How can learning be designed by designers or others to add power to informal content and context segments.
