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.
