Bloom’s Taxonomy, developed in the 1950′s, expresses thinking and learning through a set of concepts that begin with lower order thinking skills (LOTS) and build to higher order thinking skills (HOTS). The initial phraseology of Bloom’s Taxonomy had six levels, beginning with knowledge at the lowest, then progressing through comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation. The basis for the theory is rather straightforward, a person cannot understand something that he does not remember (know) nor can he/she analyze or apply that knowledge if the person does not understand the material. Though an ability to analyze and apply certainly supersedes the basic knowledge category, to synthesize entails divergently applying knowledge and/or skills to produce something new.

With the changes in the Higher Education landscape there has been a recent emergence in ‘social learning’ – informal learning taking place on social platforms and within online communities. Users connect with OER (Open Education Resources) made freely available from across the web and collate for a holistic subject view for self-education. The content and the learner’s interaction with it is then socialised through peer review and online collaboration, in some cases remixing the original content by factoring in new content for repurpose it for personal use.
