Abstract

This study shows us how the learning strategies are related to learner’s characteristics such as cognitive intelligence level or traditional/distance. The research questions are; 1) Is there any difference in learning strategies between high and low SAT groups? 2) Is there any difference in learning strategies between traditional and distance learners? An online learning strategy program was developed and applied to 321 students in seven universities in Korea. Findings showed that learners with low SAT group had a tendency of cramming and preference for highly structured courses than high SAT group learners. High SAT group learners were found to have learning strategies such as grasp of the point, time management, and scanning more than others. Also, distance learners tended to have a habit of work regularly, solving difficult work by their own effort, and have more interest as learning motivation. Finally, implications and suggestions for further study were discussed.
