Online learning opportunities, offered either entirely online or as a supplement to a face-to-face course, have rapidly expanded in recent years. However, little is known about how learners' learning styles relate to learning outcomes and how online collaborative learning positively or negatively affects learners with various learning styles. The purposes of this presentation are to: (1) explore the various online learning styles presented in a Web-based collaborative learning course, (2) examine the relationship between online learning styles and assessment results, and (3) investigate how course design may positively or negatively affect learners of diverse learning styles.
