Successful Web Learning Environments: New Design Guidelines.
Martinez, Margaret
The Web offers the perfect technology and environment for precision learning because learners can be uniquely identified, relevant content can be specifically personalized, and subsequent response and progress can be monitored, supported, and assessed. Technologically, researchers are making rapid progress realizing the personalized learning dream with object architecture and adaptive technology. The missing link is a truly personal, whole-person understanding of how individuals learn (more than just how they process and build knowledge). Primarily cognitive solutions are often no longer capable of meeting sophisticated online learning needs in the Information Age. This paper provides design guidelines for learning environments from an alternative whole-person perspective. Offering a unique perspective about learning in the 21st century, this paper introduces learner-difference profiles describing sources for individual learning differences, specific reasons why some learners are more successful than others, strategies for helping learners improve Web learning ability, and design guidelines that tap into the dominant influence of emotions, intentions, and social factors on learning. These insights offer simple ways to enhance and evaluate contemporary Web instructional designs so that they instill the right habits for continuous learning and performance improvement. (Author/AEF)
