How can we effectively impart change management knowledge to students in business disciplines, residing in one of the world's most rapidly evolving nations? We argue that the answer lies in seamless, intuitive rapid development tools deployed for effective teaching and interactive learning. Our study illuminates the early stages of the transformation involving a microlearning module centered around 'change management.' Leveraging rapid development tools that resonate with andragogical principles in higher education pedagogy, we devised this module for units within both undergraduate and graduate business courses.

Situated within the higher education pedagogical framework, this paper presents a compelling case study that emanates from the UAE. The UAE's distinctive feature lies in its remarkable journey from its inception as a fledgling nation with virtually no paved roads to its present stature, marked by monumental events like EXPO 2020. Through the strategic infusion of interactive elements and assessments into asynchronous learning materials, the research probes the amplification of student engagement and comprehension across diverse educational contexts.

Drawing from an exploratory methodology, this study delves into the multifaceted contributions of rapid eLearning tools in achieving comprehensive learning objectives and igniting a transformative shift in education. The outcomes derived from this inquiry provide valuable insights into the pragmatic application of these tools within higher education. This knowledge is poised to cater to the needs of educators and institutions aiming to harness technological innovations to augment the effectiveness of teaching and learning endeavors.
