Pair the 7 Learning Styles with Your LMS
Just like fingerprints, everyone has their own unique learning style. In an online learning environment, certain methods motivate one set of individuals while others have alternate preferences of digesting information. The key to understanding learning styles is finding a balance between them. A mix of various learning styles reinforces information from multiple angles, leading to increased comprehension and productivity.
A learner’s thoughts can play a significant role in e-learning, as in the case of interpersonal learners. The nature of keeping thoughts internalized pushes them to pursue self-study methods and solitude. Since solitary learners are driven by the way they see themselves internally, educators should ask individuals to set goals for the course and encourage journaling. These activities will foster an alignment between the learners’ objectives and goals with the subject matter. Use your LMS to find ways to let this type of learner check in with you without putting them in a position to broadcast progress.
Fun fact: Solitary learning reflects a person’s innate ability to understand his or her inner world.
