  in both ways the outcome is learning.
classic ( pavlov dog) .response is elicited by a stimulus. ringinging d bell....... salivation.

operant: the response ( voluntary action) is illicited bcos it produces reward or punishment.
eg. u do ur home work u get a candy. the child will therefore do his hw always so as to get d reward.
u pee on d bed u get flocked, d child gets flocked wnevr he pees on d bed.

in summary classic is involuntary , stimulus leads to response
operant is voluntary. u go from d outcome ( do ur HW do get get a reward) or u get punished from not doing ur HW.

thumbs up if it makes sense.
