Instructional System Development (ISD) is a set of procedures for systematically designing and developing instruction. A solid foundation in learning theory is an essential element in the application of ISD. One question that one might ask is whether there is one best learning theory for instructional design using learning objects (LOs). Depending on the learners and the situation, different learning theories may apply. The authors do not recommended one particular theory for the design of instruction based on LOs, but rather the adoption of an eclectic approach to learning theory in the design of instruction using LOs. In this work, an overview of the ISD methodology that is based on e-learning Objects (ISDMeLO) is given. This proposed methodology, which incorporates principles from different learning schools, is currently being tested by K-12 teachers from public schools, as well as instructional designers from private companies in Brazil.
