Learning Style Preferences and the Perceived Usefulness of E-Learning
Mohr, Alexander Toni; Holtbrugge, Dirk; Berg, Nicola
Teaching in Higher Education, v17 n3 p309-322 2012
This paper uses data gathered from 953 students to investigate how far individuals' preferences for a particular learning style are associated with the perceived usefulness of e-learning. Our findings reveal the effect of individuals' learning styles as well as their gender and professional experience on the perceived usefulness of different forms of e-learning. The study's findings enhance our understanding of the usefulness of different e-learning tools from a learner perspective and thus have implications for curriculum design. The study also contributes to the empirical basis on the relevance of learning styles in the design of virtual learning environments. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
