Announcer: The e-Learning Lingo Podcast.

Mary Kay Lofurno: Hello, this is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director here at SyberWorks.

Welcome to the 55th episode of the e-Learning Lingo Podcast series. Last week Dave Powell talked about localization. This week David will discuss a term used in e-Learning theory known as reductionism.

So I ask you, do you know your e-Learning Lingo?

Mary Kay: Hi, Dave. So, tell us about reductionism.

David Powell: Reductionism is a way to understand complex things by reducing them to the interactions of their parts, or to fundamental concepts. The theory of reductionism explains that a complex system is nothing but a sum of parts, and that by breaking down these parts, explanations, theories, and meanings, are easier to understand.

Mary Kay Lofurno: Thanks, Dave. Have a great afternoon.

David Powell: You too. Talk with you soon.

Mary Kay Lofurno: This is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director at SyberWorks. Thanks for listening to the 55th episode of the e-Learning Lingo Podcast. This week Dave Powell explained reductionism. The episode #55 podcast audio and transcript will be posted on the e-Learning Lingo Podcast blog.

Next time, on the e-Learning Lingo Podcast, we will discuss a term used in technology management. Until then, have an awesome week.
