Abstract

As e-learning begins to proliferate into secondary schools and is opened up to learners of all abilities, it is important that the effects different learning styles have upon how online instruction is provided are taken into consideration. In this study, students from a secondary-level business education class completed a learning styles inventory to determine their strengths in the traditional learning styles and in Gardner's intelligences. A variety of web-based instructional methods were utilized throughout the school year and the students' overall performance in the course was monitored.
