Although many benefits of case-based instruction with technology have been reported, there are few empirical studies of how the benefits of multimedia-based, case-based e-learning (CBEL) are mediated by students' individual differences, such as their learning styles. Understanding the relationships between students' learning styles and the learning benefits of CBEL is important not only for the effective design of CBEL, but also for its appropriate use. This study investigates how students perceive the benefits of a CBEL lesson according to the four dimensions of learning style (sensing-intuitive, sequential-global, active-reflective, and visual-verbal dimensions). Fifty fourth-year students in a dental school were given a one-hour long lesson of CBEL for anesthesiology. The results revealed that sensing, sequential, and reflective learners tended to have a more meaningful learning experience with the given CBEL lesson compared with intuitive, global, and active learners.
