The Internet provides access to many learning materials thatcould complement class room teaching. An educational recommender system can aid learners to find learning materialsmost suitable to them. The best learning materials will depend on learner characteristics. This paper investigates theinfluence of learner personality. In particular, it describes astudy in the language learning domain that explores the relation between learners’ extroversion and the extent to whichlearning materials are perceived to be enjoyable and to increase their confidence and skills. We found positive correlations between extroversion and these criteria for social andactive learning materials.
