Abstract: while state-of-the-art MOOCs seem disappointing in their ability to truly enact connectivist learning processes, it is necessary to define the determining conditions in the educational environment that reinforce and optimise current 21st century learning processes. In this article we propose that microcontents are synonymous with the sentences exchanged over Web 2.0 conversations. We determine the role that microcontents have within connectivist theory, and review empirical studies that illustrate how adapting contents to microcontent formats can improve learning processes and create conditions truly adapted to connectivist learning.
