Abstract:Post-secondary education sees an increasing variety of instructional media and an increasing diversity among learners. The goal of this study was to ascertain whether students of different learning styles, majors, and genders benefited from particular instructional media. Students completed a learning styles inventory and a survey of perceived usefulness of each instructional medium. Qualitative information was collected in student focus groups. All students perceived some of the same instructional media as useful and all valued a mix of media. A rich ecology of media appears to enhance student learning.
