chunkx @LearnTec 2022

This year’s LearnTec 2022 was a complete success. After almost two years, we enjoyed being able to talk to (potential) customers and chunkx users in person again.

For recap, here is the recording as well as a short summary of our presentation at LearnTec. Have fun!

It’s done: Three days of LearnTec. Three days full of exciting topics, innovative technologies and new ways of thinking.

We also got to present our solutions with chunkx and talk about our vision of a continuous and adaptive learning experience. There we had the opportunity to talk together with the National Anti Doping Agency in a 20-minute presentation about how mandatory and prevention trainings are sustainably anchored in chunkx.

Check out the summary of the talk now! At the end, there’s an exciting preview of our automated content creation that you won’t want to miss!

Here is a brief summary

Adaptive content selection

Whether mandatory content or regular training, learning content must be as relevant as possible. That is why chunkx works with flexible microlearning units that are dynamically selected for users depending on their level of knowledge. Using learning tasks and self-assessments, our algorithms find out where strengths and weaknesses lie when using the app. Thus, the continuous repetitions focus on the mandatory content that is relevant for the employees.

Continuous learning

In chunkx, the learning process is not over with the completion of a final test. Especially not when it comes to training where the learning objectives are mandatory on an annual basis. Because in chunkx, mandatory content can be supplemented with small moments of reflection for as long as users or companies want. Among other things, learning objectives are set more flexibly and regularly in order to continuously repeat topics and ensure learning transfer.

Connecting learning

In chunkx, self-directed learning is encouraged. This way, learners can decide for themselves how long and intensive they want their learning unit to be. At the touch of a button, they determine at the start of their learning session whether they want to devote themselves to just one topic, such as a required course, or to multiple topics. As a result, topics no longer compete for the attention of users, but instead connect and reinforce each other.

Intuitive and clear documentation

In our authoring tool, the chunkx creator, clear documentation helps to optimize mandatory courses in a targeted manner: They break down the learning needs and assign the learners' weaknesses to specific content. In this way, supplementary learning courses, face-to-face seminars or other learning measures can be designed. By the way: The evaluation takes place where you want it. Either conveniently in chunkx or in your learning management system.

Digital learning with chunkx

chunkx is aimed at both companies and educational institutions, such as universities or schools. In addition to closed instances, chunkx offers a public area. Academies such as those offered by Together Against Doping, museums and other educational institutions are offered here.

With chunkx, we offer you a tool to expand both new and existing measures in a targeted manner. Are you not yet a customer? Then contact us for a personal presentation and let’s talk about the possibilities together. We look forward to hearing from you!

chunkx wins a Comenius-EduMedia Award

We are honored to have been recognized by the Gesellschaft für Pädagogik, Information und Medien e.V. (GPI) as one of the most outstanding educational media for work, training, school, culture and leisure. The award not only recognizes the years of development of our micro-learning app, but also proves the quality and impact of the continuous and sustainable learning experience with chunkx! A big thank you also to the National Anti-Doping Agency, which has proven with the COMMON AGAINST DOPING Academy on chunkx how successfully a sustainable learning culture can be established.

Enclosed you can now find the German version of the press release.

chunkx wins in the category "Digital didactic media products

Berlin, Germany – the micro-learning app chunkx was honored on June 23 at this year’s Comenius Award ceremony in Berlin by the Gesellschaft für Pädagogik, Information und Medien e.V. (GPI) as one of the most outstanding educational media for work, training, school, culture and leisure.

The demand and also the market for digital educational media are growing continuously. However, only a fraction can meet the pedagogical, didactic and technical criteria and establish a sustainable digital educational medium. With the Comenius-EduMedia Award, GPI has therefore made it its task to test and award digital educational media according to the criteria mentioned. For more than 26 years, the awards have been presented in the categories Digital Didactic Media Products, General Digital Media Products, Teaching and Learning Management Systems, and Computer Games with Competence Enhancing Potential.

This year, over 200 manufacturers, publishers, projects and authors from 8 European countries applied and underwent the manufacturer-neutral quality check.

The Comenius EduMedia Award underlines the didactic quality achieved by the National Anti-Doping Agency together with chunkx and confirms the growing demand for digital solutions for adaptive and continuous learning.

chunkx convinces with innovative approaches for sustainable learning

For the award in the category “Digital didactic media product”, chunkx was able to convince not only with its innovative use of artificial intelligence and adaptive algorithms, but also with the pedagogical concept behind it. Based on scientific theories such as“Multi Store Model of Memory“,“Information Processing Theory” or “Certainty Based Marking”, chunkx lays the foundation for a new learning culture.

The following approaches in particular stood out:

Microlearning units for continuity

To move from static to adaptive learning paths and make invested learning time as effective as possible, chunkx follows the micro-learning approach. Individual learning units are packed into small chunks in order to be more “digestible” for the learner. Instead of listening to an extensive course or video/audio once, content is equalized and repeated over longer periods of time. The resulting moments of reflection promote the sustainability of the learning process and enable a deeper anchoring than so-called “bulimic learning” can.

Adaptivity for knowledge-based learning content

In chunkx, learning content isselected based on users . Specially developed algorithms not only repeat the microlearning units, but also select them dynamically based on the knowledge level of the individual users. This selection can be constantly readjusted. Because with every action of the learner, the app also continues to learn and improve the selection.

Self-determined and connecting learning

In chunkx, learners decide for themselves how long and intensive they want their learning unit to be. You can use the “Start all your channels” button to learn more than one topic. At the touch of a button, chunkx then selects the most suitable microlearning unit from all subscribed topics and based on the individual learning history. As a result, topics no longer compete for the attention of users, but instead connect and reinforce each other. In addition, the existing learning content is enriched by further relevant information such as published articles, studies or podcasts in the form of postings .

Simple and AI-based content creation

To actively contribute to a new continuous and sustainable learning culture, chunkx offers AI-based content creation. With the click of a button, chunkx users can upload content, have microlearning units created automatically, and start learning. This not only involves all learning parties in extending learning courses, but also lets them share knowledge with others in the easiest way.

Interview Learntec 2020

Finally, we get to share the interview that took place last year at Learntec 2020. What are the most important points?

In 2020 – yes, that was a long time ago – we were at Learntec with our team and were interviewed by Dekra Media. We are happy to announce that the video is out now and have linked you to the clip of the interview with our founder Florian Stieler above. But what is the two-minute interview about? Here are the keywords.

1. strengthen memory

Well, this is how it is introduced in the video: chunkx is supposed to strengthen memory. That’s not entirely wrong either, but it doesn’t get to the heart of the matter. In chunkx, a lot of work is done with repetition. Learning content with which we are not yet familiar enough is repeated more frequently. Those where we have demonstrated our knowledge multiple times are less likely to be repeated. This is how our individual, adaptive learning path is formed click-by-click.

This also strengthens memory, but rather selects the most relevant content for our limited time.

2. continuous learning

With chunkx, we transform one-time learning moments into continuous learning experiences. Because learning should not stop with the end of the webinar or the final test after the WBT. As long as a topic is important to me or my business, it should stay with me. Learning measures can be supplemented with chunkx for this purpose. Reflection moments are then regularly generated in our app and content is selected adaptively according to the user’s learning needs.

After all, if the transfer of learning does not occur after a training session, one can legitimately ask: What was the investment of time and money worth then?

3. our customers

chunkx is aimed at both companies and educational institutions, such as universities or schools. In addition to closed instances, chunkx offers a public area. Here, academies such as those offered by Together Against Doping and, soon, museums and other educational institutions.

Excerpts from our updates on chunkx


So far, our micro-learning units in chunkx consist of a learning task with content feedback. This means that the learning content is executed in feedback behind a task. This way, we save learners time, take an adaptive approach, and don’t have to unnecessarily go into content that a single person already knows. Nevertheless, there were wishes to be able to position learning content in front of the task as well – be it optionally by link or by a fixed display. Are you interested in the details? Talk to us.


We have created a completely new offer for educational institutes, freelance trainers & coaches and other organizations who want to create an offer for adaptive, sustainable learning to go with their trainings and seminars. Our first big Academy client is waiting to go live and we will already show you first snippets of it at ZP Europe Virtual.

Learning objectives

Authors can now define learning objectives in the creator and thus control and log performance fulfillment in the same way as they are used to from an LMS. But with the big difference that in chunkx the separation between testing and learning is removed. We trigger learning processes with learning tasks that lead to adaptive content selection. The fulfillment of learning objectives takes place in passing, without the need for a separate and questionable final test.

Much more

From new task types to adapted customization options to the new entry tutorial with diversity avatars: There’s a lot to see for both our established customers and new contacts. It is best to register for a fixed appointment, we look forward to meeting you.

What is chunkx?

chunkx is a micro-learning app with a focus on enabling continuous learning on any topic or learning activity. For this, you can post learning tasks as an author at chunkx, e.g. on the last leadership training, on compliance eLearning and on the onboarding process. All topics subscribed by your collaborators and users will be connected for them in an individual stream. This automatically adapts to the respective knowledge level. In this way, we relieve users of the work of first having to choose what to learn. Thanks to the micro-learning format, chunkx makes it possible to learn even in the smallest moments: whether it’s 1 min before the call goes off or 5 min when the train is late (fortunately, this only happens very rarely with Deutsche Bahn).

chunkx 2.0 or: Your feedback implemented

Does that sound good already? Well, it gets much better: At Learntec you will see chunkx in a new, even fresher design. The design allows more individualization for our customers and is more clearly arranged. It’s also optimized for our new features:

Sessions and direct evaluation

In the future, you will start your tasks in chunkx by clicking the “Start New Session” button. Sounds stupid at first, a new button… But: By this little button press we create a bracket around your learning tasks that you work on. We evaluate this session especially for you, put it in context with your other results and show you even better what you are already good at and what you are not yet so good at. chunkx shows you detailed evaluations like no other learning app that will help you get ahead and have fun.


Not all content belongs in learning tasks. And since we already have a great algorithm that connects many topics for you, we thought we’d add a timeline for you. The Timeline is waiting for you when you start the app, showing you updates from authors and giving you status information.

Ranking and competition

It’s always been there, but now you can take part in it too: Our ranking. Each user can voluntarily decide whether she or he wants to see other users and be seen with an individual user name to be created. If you participate, you can follow other users and enter the competition: you will be automatically informed as soon as you have overtaken or been overtaken by a user you are following.

More successes

You can look forward to our classic course menu, with which we reward the achievement of certain scores. Each course was selected based on a signature dish from a famous chef. Each success is of course followed by a page with background information – after all, we are here to learn.

For authors: tagging and content linking

As an author, you have probably already seen it in our chunkx creator: Tasks can be tagged or keyworded. First of all, this has the advantage that evaluations can be filtered specifically to individual keywords. But for us, it’s the basis for linking content even better for your subscribers in the future, making smarter suggestions, and selecting more relevant content. A bit of this is still up in the air, but feel free to talk to us and we’ll tell you more.

Visit us at Learntec
