In her post, Questioning Gagnè and Bloom’s Relevance , Christy Tucker describes how we often get caught up in theories without really looking at whether the research supports those theories. In the military we called this an interest device —a story or some other vehicle for capturing the learners' attention and helping them to see the importance of learning the tasks at hand. Tell learners the learning objective.

They should never overshadow the core ideas and concepts, or distract online learners from the learning objectives. Many learning theories support the benefits of repetition.
