Learning Style and its Impact on the Delivery of Online Education
Posted Friday, Jan 29, 2010 by
Online learning is validated in part by the differences in learning style. Learners who are visual and self-directed can become very adept with online curriculum. Individuals who find online learning enticing are often pleased by how coursework can become suitable to one’s personal lifestyle.
The traits needed for successfully taking and passing a course online are actually quite attainable: The ability to use email, access to the internet, and word processing software.
Online learning delivery methods are notably different from those of traditional classrooms. Thus, a healthy understanding of one’s self-learning abilities can go a long way in sharpening studying habits in virtually any educational setting. Students fit into one of three categories, which include visual, auditory and tactile/kinesthetic.
For those gaining new exposure to e-learning, any resistance experienced at first can be overcome by embracing the change from face-to-face learning to a more dynamic instructor-led self-paced style in which the student has far more control over when and where study time takes place.
Students can often find themselves in the challenging position of managing how they approach online education along with their ability to successfully use the technology involved.
