Abstract

This paper discusses and evaluates the technological and pedagogical implications of designing large-scale, online learning resources that can be offered to accommodate a variety of learning styles and abilities. The theory of online learning design and issues of cognitive ability are discussed, together with the concomitant issues of learning impairment and preferred learning styles. The focus of the presentation is on a live demonstration of a resource that can accommodate multiple learning styles without duplication of materials. The presentation will demonstrate the technological design and pedagogical underpinning of the resource and encourage discussion of the major issues in both domains.
