Coping with Mismatched Courses: Students' Behaviour and Performance in Courses Mismatched to Their Learning Styles
Kinshuk; Liu, Tzu-Chien; Graf, Sabine
Educational Technology Research and Development, v57 n6 p739-752 Dec 2009
Although learning styles are considered as an important factor in education, students often have to learn in courses that do not support their learning styles. A challenge for technology facilitated learning is therefore to assist and help students to cope with courses that do not match their learning styles by training and developing their less preferred skills. In this paper, the interactions between students' learning styles, their behaviour, and their performance in an online course that is mismatched regarding their learning styles were analysed. The results show which learners need more help in mastering mismatched courses, help in getting a better understanding about how students with good performance record and poor performance record learn with respect to their learning styles, and provide information about how to identify learners who might have difficulties in learning based on their behaviour.
