-Course Design and Learning Styles
-Subjects and Procedures
˙ the fundamental basis:
Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator (MBTI)
˙ several of the learning style inventory tools:
-Kolb Learning Styles Inventory
-Canfield Learning Styles Inventory
-the Grasha-Reichmann Learning Styles Scales
-the Gregorc Learning Styles Delineator (GSD)
- Diaz and Cartnal were one of the first to compare the learning styles of online learners with on-campus students.
- The Kolb LSI and a self-created survey were used by Karuppan to evaluate student access to an online lecture in two sections of an introductory principles of management course.
- Andrusyszyn administered a self-developed questionnaire to 125 nurse practitioner students.
While transitioning an on-campus Leadership in Organizations course to the online environment, Hutton found that structured learning goals and threaded discussions were necessary for online learning.
Simon found significant differences in the preferred training methods based on the Kolb learning style. Specifically, differences were reported between the reflective/observers and their active/experimentation counterparts for skill acquisition and comprehension.
The research design for this study was a descriptive correlation study utilizing a 2-part survey.
The subjects consisted of a convenience sample of all graduate students(N = 331) enrolled in an active online graduate course offered bySetonWorldWide.
Convenience was the most frequent reason (91.7%) given for choosing online learning, while 46.9% cited the appeal of online learning as a major reason for enrolling in an online graduate program.
