This study compared learner perceptions of two online courses-one using the more traditional approach capitalizing on the affordances of Blackboard and one using the Community of Practice Learning System (COPLS) one-on-one model (Norton, 2003). Results revealed that both environments were perceived as providing a high quality learning experience. In addition, results point to the importance of self-regulation, the role of the instructor/facilitator/mentor, and the role of the group as factors influencing learners' perception of the quality of their learning experience, positive aspects of their learning experience, and challenges that influenced their learning experience.

The purpose of this paper is to report the results of a comparative and descriptive study that examined the relationship and effects of incorporating students’ learning styles in the design of instruction and the outcome of students’ learning, including their attitude and satisfaction. The paper will first explain how the literature on learning styles was used to develop a list of assumptions about learning styles, and further how these assumptions were used to identify a learning style model.
