Recent developments in learning technologies such as hypermedia are becoming widespread and offer significant contributions to improving the delivery of learning and teaching materials. A key factor in the development of hypermedia learning systems is cognitive style (CS) as it relates to users‟ information processing habits, representing individual users‟ typical modes of perceiving, thinking, remembering and problem solving. A total of 97 students from Australian (45) and Malaysian (52… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Earlier studies have found the effectiveness of hypermedia systems as learning tools heavily depend on their compatibility with the cognitive processes by which students perceive, understand andExpand
Cognitive style and hypermedia learning: A multi-perspective study
The massive growth of information communication technologies (ICTs) has revolutionized students’ learning in higher education through the advancement of educational technologies. Technologies such asExpand
Demographic differences in how students navigate through MOOCs
This paper presents an empirical study of how students navigate through MOOCs, and is, to this knowledge, the first to investigate how navigation strategies differ by demographics such as age and country of origin. Expand
Initial Writing and Cognitive Style
Comparative effects of two methods used for teaching writing at the initial level were examined: the global and syllabic approaches and their interaction with cognitive style in the fieldExpand

Engagement in Web-Based Learning System: An Investigation of Linear and Nonlinear Navigation
This paper investigates linear and nonlinear navigations in Web-based learning (WBL) systems. The aim of the study was to identify whether the linear and the nonlinear navigations could be theExpand
The article is a theoretical review that explores the potential of educational stylistics as a field of research, from two perspectives: 1) with the analysis...


What affect student cognitive style in the development of hypermedia learning system?
The research findings indicated that non-linear learning is the primary dimension that determines students' CS, followed by multiple tools (MT) and learner control (LC) dimensions, and the results confirm that background information has effects onStudents' CS. Expand
The influence of learner differences on the construction of hypermedia concepts: a case study
Abstract This study employed the case study methodology, focusing on three students engaged in a group task. The students were grouped together based on their learning style and cognitive controlExpand
Towards new forms of knowledge communication: the adaptive dimension of a web-based learning environment
Learners’ knowledge level and individual traits are used as valuable information to represent learners’ current state and personalise the educational system accordingly, in order to facilitate learners to achieve their personal learning goals and objectives. Expand
Individual differences, hypermedia navigation, and learning: an empirical study
The learning behaviour and performance of 65 postgraduate students using a hypermedia-based tutorial were measured. Data were also obtained on cognitive style, levels of prior experience, motivation,Expand
Cognitive styles and hypermedia navigation: Development of a learning model
This article reviews the published findings from empirical studies of hypermedia learning and classifies the research into five themes: nonlinear learning, learner control, navigation in hyperspace, matching and mismatching, and learning effectiveness. Expand
The design and the formative evaluation of an adaptive educational system based on cognitive styles
The design issues that were considered for the development of the system that are reported in the relevant literature are described and the results of the formative evaluation were used to improve the system in order to make the instruction more effective and efficient. Expand
The relationship between learning style and cognitive style
Abstract One of the principal debates in the field of individual differences in ‘learning style’ (often used to include cognitive style) has centred around the proliferation of constructs andExpand
Web-based learning programs: Use by learners with various cognitive styles
This study presents a Web-based learning system (WBLS) and analyzes learners' browsing data recorded in the log file and proposes a design model for system designers to tailor the preferences linked with each cognitive style. Expand
Matching/mismatching revisited: an empirical study of learning and teaching styles
Support is provided for the notion that matching and mismatching can have significant effects on learning outcomes and on gender, matching mainly affecting male students. Expand
Modelling user navigation behaviours in a hyper-media-based learning system : An individual differences approach
This research examines the relationship between individual differences (in particular, cognitive styles) and navigation strategies using a WWW-based hypermedia learning system and found that students with differing cognitive styles selected different access facilities and applied different navigation patterns.
