Different Keystrokes for Different Folks: Addressing Learning Styles in Online Education
Pinchot, Jamie; Paullet, Karen
Information Systems Education Journal, v12 n2 p29-37 Mar 2014
Online learning has become increasingly popular in recent years. This interest in online education has brought about new learning opportunities for both educators and learners. Technology has enabled higher education institutions the ability to provide quality education reaching learners that might otherwise be impossible. When developing online classes it is important to keep in mind the different types of learning styles. In this paper the VAK Learning Styles (Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic) were addressed. The authors also provided practical guidance for implementing the VAK model by reviewing several free online tools that can assist with building online learning experiences that address each learning style.
