High heid yin of British e-learning Donald Clark takes a look at
"the people who shaped learning theory and practice over the centuries. They have all played a role in shaping (some mis-shaping) the learning landscape. Our theorists are major thinkers who have reflected on the large-scale issues around learning and education. The practitioners have more direct relevance, as their advice is wholly relevant to the design of e-learning programmes."
Language teachers may also be interested in linking the general theories to language-specific concepts and illustrations from the language classroom: http://unt.unice.fr/uoh/learn_teach_FL/
