In this chapter, we seek conceptual clarity on the notion of seamless learning towards understanding its unique contributions towards learning. We will compare the salient characteristics of seamless learning with the definitions and framing of other relevant learning notions or approaches. We postulate that putting together related notions, theorisations or practices of different-named notions of learning together in juxtaposition, can create new sparkles that help us derive new perspectives and insights into learning theory and design. Our initial expositions in this chapter are intended to inform cross-fertilisation between seamless learning and other learning notions to inspire and guide the advancement of further relevant research and practice. Copyright © 2019 Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
