This website was first created in 2001 by Leilani Pedroni as a Final Project for Dr. Kim Foreman's 800 course that focuses on Learning Theory at San Francisco State University's Instructional Technology Graduate program. The information in this site is from research from countless students and researchers who have published their findings on the World Wide Web.

With the development of the internet, the amount of resources available is awesome. In this digital age, theories, designs, and systems are constantly challenged, changed, and invented. With that said, this site is continually improving. Please fill out the Feedback Form for questions, suggestions, or additions to add to the site.
