Abstract

Initiatives based on learning style adaptation are often marked by a lack of experimental evaluation of their efficacy in general and of student satisfaction in particular. A high level of satisfaction can increase the motivation of students, their engagement and experience, and therefore improve their learning. This paper is concerned with the investigation of the effect of adaptation based on learning style on students' satisfaction. An adaptive approach, which involves the construction of personalised learning paths based on learning style, was implemented in an adaptive e-learning system. A controlled experiment in this learning environment was conducted with sixty undergraduate students to evaluate their level of satisfaction with the system. The results indicate that the students were generally satisfied with their learning experience. It can be concluded that adaptation of learning content according to learning style can improve student satisfaction and enhance their experience and motivation.
