Study about the Aptitude-Treatment Interaction between Learning Using the e-Learning System and Learning Type of Learner

Ryo Sugawara, Shun Okuhara, and Yoshikazu Sato

Abstract—The low completion rate of e-learning, which has been considered as a problem since its inception, is recently attracting renewed attention as a problem yet to be solved. This study confirms the assumption that the effect of e-learning varies with the learner’s learning type, and that a low e-learning completion rate results from the participation of learners who are unsuited to e-learning. It has been found that the differences between e-learning achievement rates can be classified into seven learning types. This suggests that e-learning may have little effect when the e-learning system does not match the learner's learning type.

Index Terms—e-Learning, act of learning, learning type, aptitude-treatment interaction.
