Using Personality in e-Learning Choices book
This chapter describes each personality type and the preferences people have that are relevant to learning. People tend to do well at areas that suit their personality. Tutors, either e-mail tutors or local administrators, fulfil an important role for some personality types in facilitating their learning process, this is as the performance coach. There is one final aspect of personality differences that has some relevance to e-learning. Although each of the 16 personality types is unique, it is impractical to design or implement e-learning for all personality types. The preferences for content presentation categorize the various personality types in a fairly simple way. The different value learners place on freedom and order also present a simple opportunity for the designer to make an allowance for individual preferences. Really independent learners who are inwardly focused and use objective measures to judge their progress have little, if any need for external human reference or intervention.
