How do Students Respond to CBL to Suit Modality Learning Preferences?
_University of Warwick
This paper discusses an adaptive multimedia interface which was developed to provide a route through learning material based on an individual student’s learning style. The research explores students’ attitude to CBL and raises issues concerning the nature of Multimedia learning; the value of learning styles inventories; the specific features of computer-based learning; and the strengths and limitations of CBL packages. The study concerns a package which was designed to instruct learners in advanced features of PowerPoint. Four different routes were presented in the material to appeal four learner preferences as Visual, Aural, Reading and Kinaesthetic. The research aims to describe, assess and offer a framework for considering the user response to the material and how well the material adapted to their strongest modality. Data from mix method approaches has been gathered and the results from observations, questionnaire, online testing and interviewing are analysed.
