Development and Evaluation of a Mobile-Learning Application Based on the Felder-Silverman Learning Styles Model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Every student has a different learning style. Not all of these learning styles can be facilitated through classroom learning. Mobile learning (m-learning) is the use of mobile technology to support learning activities and facilitate a variety of student learning styles. However, no previous studies of the development of m-learning products have tested the possibility of facilitating different learning styles within a single M-learning application. This study describes the development and evaluation of an adaptive m-learning application that can facilitate the needs of different students. The Felder-Silverman Learning Style Model was used as the reference for learning styles. The prototype application was developed using the user-centered design method, which includes user needs analysis, interaction design, application development, and usability testing. The designers followed the best practices laid out in Shnei-derman's Eight Golden Rules of Interface Design and Gagné's Nine Events of Instruction. A usability test of the prototype involving ten participants. Usability testing is carried out by conducting usability testing and filling out the System Usability Scale (SUS) questionnaire by all participants. The result found that it had good usability.
