Didactic
(from the Greek didaktikos, meaning 'apt at teaching')

Something which is intended to instruct. Didactic conveyed a neutral meaning when it was first borrowed in the 17th century, but now often has negative connotations, because something didactic can be overburdened with instruction to the point of being dull, or it might be pompously instructive or moralistic.
