    Theorist badgeActivity 3: Learning discussion

    Discussion on the following: why did the people on your course learn what they learned? Was it the assessment? Was it the great content? Was it the activities? Was it your slides?

    We have asked what is learning? We have asked what are the benefits and drawbacks of three modes of learning? The main discussion, now, is why does learning happen in your place? Please turn to the discussion forum.
