Abstract

We found the typical approach of classifying students in adaptive learning environments towards learning styles can be limiting, because it does not consider that different learning contexts often tend to create different learning style preferences. We developed a prototype designed to provide the students with the possibility to change their approach to learning a subject - and their preferences within - at every step of the educational experience. This adaptable learning environment includes an array of multimedia-based information sources that support a range of differing learning styles. With this prototype, we hope to derive information about learners' strategies and learning styles in the future.
