Abstract

The Internet provides access to many learning materials that could complement class room teaching. An educational recommender system can aid learners to find learning materials most suitable to them. The best learning materials will depend on learner characteristics. This paper investigates the inuence of learner personality. In particular, it describes a study in the language learning domain that explores the relation between learners' extroversion and the extent to which learning materials are perceived to be enjoyable and to increase their confidence and skills. We found positive correla-tions between extroversion and these criteria for social and active learning materials.
