-Learning theories are usually divided into several [[glossary#​paradigm|paradigms]] which represent different perspectives on the learning process. [[glossary#​theory|Theories]] within the same paradigm share the same point of view. Currently, the most commonly accepted learning paradigms are behaviorism,​ cognitivism,​ constructivism,​ connectivism,​ social learning and humanism but there are others as well.
