Using learning styles theory to improve on-line learning through computer assisted diagnosis
conference contributionposted on 25.05.2006, 15:45 by Kevin Palmer, Carolyn May
Despite the success in a number of education and training environments of a variety of Learning Styles diagnostic tools1,2 and particularly the success of Honey and Mumford3, there still appears to be a scarcity of research, development and action on the application of this work to e-learning. When we compare developments around the issues of, for example, content development and pedagogy4, authoring and packaging tools5, virtual and managed learning environments and interoperability6, or accessibility of learning products and services for disabled people7, we find comparatively little research and comparatively very little application of Learning Styles thinking to the development of e-learning products, services, environments and practices.
