I used this book for the educational technology for classroom teachers course. Students had no previous exposure to learning theory and it was relatively simple to read for them. It covers a lot of ground, although not in too much depth. A good introductory text

Technical Remarks:

Very easy interface because it looks like a wiki or wikipedia page
Used in course? Yes
