Abstract

This paper investigates the influence of learner personality and learning styles on the selection of different styles of learning materials. We considered the big five personality traits (focusing in particular on Extroversion and Openness to Experience) and Felder and Soloman's Index of Learning Styles instrument (ILS).We found no real impact of learning styles, except for a small e.ect for the visual/verbal style. We also did not find an impact of personality on the selection of different styles of learning materials.
