Learning Styles

Felder-Silverman Learning Style Model

This model classifies students on five spectrums:

Sensing/Intuitive
Visual/Verbal
Inductive/Deductive
Active/Reflective
Sequential/Global

Sensing

Creating web based training that appeals to this kind of learner probably means including details, well laid out procedures, verifiable facts, and practical applications of the information being presented.

Intuitive

Simulations and the opportunity to explore other web sites would probably be more appealing to this kind of learner. The implication to society or civilization as a whole of the practical application of the information being presented might make web based training of more interest to this kind of learner.

Visual

Including pictures, graphs, drawings, diagrams, and video might make web based training more effective for this kind of learner.

Verbal

Text and recorded voice should be included in web based training designed for this kind of learner.

Inductive

Web based training that proceeds from the specific facts to the general might have more appeal for this kind of learner.

Deductive

Web based training that proceeds from the general idea to the specific might have more appeal for this kind of learner.

Active

Web based training designed for this kind of learner should probably contain simulations and exercises that allow them to interact with the information.

Reflective

Web based training is the natural environment for this kind of learner since they prefer to work alone and think about what they are learning at their own pace.

Sequential

Web based training designed to go from beginning to end over a prescribed route would probably be most appealing to this kind of learner.

Global

Web presentations that provide graphical overviews and broad summary descriptions of topics would be effective for this kind of learner, with hypertext links imbedded in the summaries to allow more detailed explorations of specific topics.
