Falling attention spans

Microsoft Attention Span Survey

According to Microsoft attention spans have fallen by an average of 33% to 8 seconds since 2000. To put this in perspective goldfish are reputed to have an attention span of 9 seconds. Naturally this presents a challenge in delivering eLearning but also opens up opportunities to introduce eLearning tools to engage even the least attentive learner.
