I like the use of videos to help better understand each theory.  The list of references is also very useful.  My issue is that I was expecting to find material on adult learning theories/theorists, not developmental theories/theorists.  Perhaps the title of the module should be changed.

Technical Remarks:

The link to the presentation did not work.
