Abstract: Structuring learning/instructional theories suffer from the issue of |paradigms|, which makes them even more challenging. This paper discusses the conceptualisation of the theories and proposes a mechanism to provide perspectives for understanding and utilising them. Two types of conceptualisation proposed in this paper reveal their characteristics from a variety of viewpoints.
Keywords: learning theory; instructional theory; ontology; authoring systems; modelling.
