Computer science e-courses for students with different learning styles

Abstract

E-learning is a contemporary teaching tool that has become popular and widely used in engineering education in recent years. This article presents the outcomes of a study on considering students' different learning styles in teaching information and communication technology using e-learning. Students were divided into two study groups. The reference group studied according to a provided learning model which including both theoretical educational material and practical assignments. Students of the test group were divided according to their learning styles using the Felder-Silverman model. Different relevant learning models, which included the same theoretical material and practical assignments, were designed for students of the test group based on the learning styles. The results of the study proved that the learning materials which were designed taking into account students' different learning styles considerably improved the achievement of the learning outcomes. A detailed description and analysis of the study is presented in the article.
