Embracing Learning Styles in an Organization’s eLearning Environment
Just like any other teaching methodology, eLearning consists of different styles of learning and teaching. To create a better understanding, we express our view about eLearning styles in this paper. A style in the context of eLearning is the way a person expresses himself or herself characterized by all features differentiating him or her from others. An individual's learning style is mostly influenced by his or her personality, way of thinking, and preferences of pictures, sounds or actions. In this paper we create a case at a telecommunication company, where we use qualitative methods to realize and understand styles of learning in the organization through the aid of eLearning. We follow the activity theory as grounding theory for our study. Open ended questionnaires are used as data collection methods, while thematic content analysis is used as way to analyze data. The contribution is to raise an awareness to ComTek about the learning styles in eLearning, to give a picture on the overall learning styles in the organization, and to build a guideline as conceptual model to discover learning styles. // Paper ID 238
