"Instructional Design is the systematic development of instructional specifications using learning and instructional theory to ensure the quality of instruction. It is the entire process of analysis of learning needs and goals and the development of a delivery system to meet those needs. It includes development of instructional materials and activities; and tryout and evaluation of all instruction and learner activities."

The name of the topic "Learning Theories" does a good job of explaining the content. Learning is the absorption, transfer or acquisition of data, information or knowledge. A Theory is like a clump of interelated ideas. Theories are somewhat different than philosophy (more pragmatic and testable).

Learning theories are about how people learn. They are not philosophies of education which are more about what should be taught or how the education system should work.

Sites in this category describe or explain or seek to promote certain learning theories. Products or businesses should be placed elsewhere.
