      Alomyan, H, " Exploration of Instructional Strategies and Individual Differences " , "International Education Journal",Vol.4,No.4, , Adelaide, South Australia, 07/08/2004 Abstract:
      Individual differences have been identified as important factors that might have significant impact on students’ learning. This study investigated the effect of student’s cognitive styles, achievement motivation, prior knowledge, and attitudes on student’s achievement in web-based learning. A web-based course was designed for second year university students in an educational psychology class. Cognitive Style Analysis (CSA), Achievement Motivation Scale (AMS), and Attitude Scale (AS) were administered to a sample of 71 second-year university students enrolled in the educational psychology class. Findings of the study revealed that no significant differences (0.05) in achievement between field-dependent and field-independent students. Also, students with different characteristics learned equally well in webbased learning. The students enjoyed the convenience of web based learning. Competition and high expectation were the motivating forces in web based learning.. Prior knowledge and motivation seemed to be the only significant factors that explained more than 25 per cent of student achievement measured by class grade. Download

      In the past ten years the Web has attracted many educators for purposes of teaching and learning. The main advantage of the Web lies in its non-linear interaction. That is, students can have more control over their learning paths. However, this freedom of control may cause, for some students problems such as disorientation, cognitive overload and control problems. To investigate these problems researchers have shifted there focus towards finding how is web-based learning used by learners with different characteristics and styles. In this paper, we outline the findings of some research on individual differences in the context of web-based learning. We also address how webbased learning systems can be adapted to learners’ needs and styles. And then we suggest an adaptive web-based learning model, based on the analysis of findings obtained from these studies. Download
