College Students Attitudes toward Learning Process and Outcome of Online Instruction and Distance Learning across Learning Styles
Nguyen, Dat-Dao; Zhang, Yue
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v8 n12 p35-42 Dec 2011
This study uses the Learning-Style Inventory--LSI (Smith & Kolb, 1985) to explore to what extent student attitudes toward learning process and outcome of online instruction and Distance Learning are affected by their cognitive styles and learning behaviors. It finds that there are not much statistically significant differences in perceptions on many learning process and outcome indicators across learning styles. However, students who learn from concrete experience and reflective experimentation/observation didn't appreciate the flexible class schedule, need instant questions and feedback, and expect more leniency from the instructor.
