This paper outlines attempts to explore the potential of application learning styles in Web-based learning environments. Although researchers agree on the importance of application of leaning styles in learning systems, there are still numerous problems needed to undertake, such as aspects to model, how to present content matching individual learning style. The authors develop a mechanism to fully model student's learning styles and present the matching content, including contain, format, media type, etc., to individual student, based on the Felder-Silverman Learning Style Theory. A prototype for PHP programming course was developed. With this system, students are able to learning PHP programming with course content that matches their own learning style, and hopefully it can improve student's learning efficiency and effectiveness. Currently, an evaluation is going to be conducted to assess the learning efficiency and effectiveness of using the system.
