LEARNING STYLES THEORY FOR INTELLIGENT LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS - Adapting the Instruction

Yasmín Hernández, Guillermo Rodríguez

Abstract

It is well known that personalized tutoring helps to improve the learning process and to obtain better results. With this aim we are developing a model including the learning styles of the students. We based our model on the Felder-Silverman Learning Styles Model. According to the student learning style, the instruction is established by a proposed set of rules. To prove our model we propose to use an LMS in compliance with SCORM. In this paper we present our general proposal.
