With learning management systems, it often seems like a daunting task to newcomers because they feel that it won’t necessarily work with their learning style. However, learning management systems have made large strides in making learning online more adaptable for every type of learner.
There are three different types of learning styles – visual learning, auditory learning, and kinesthetic learning. Most learners lean mainly towards one learning style, but with some inclination towards the other two.
- Kinesthetic learners are more hands on learners, but there are tips that will help them to better concentrate all through the course.
- Visual learners learn better when there are images, colors and pictures incorporated into the online content.
- Auditory learners need to hear the content, this helps them to better understand and retain the information.
Each learning style will have to adjust in some way to online learning, but every student can be successful. Knowing what type of learner you are can help you to adjust appropriately and adapt your learning style.
