Abstract
  • The educational environment is filled with different types of students, all with diverse learning styles. The Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator and Kolb’s Theory of Experiential Learning are generally accepted methods for determining and assessing a person’s preferred method of information processing. There has been research that suggests learning styles are specific to academic disciplines. Furthermore, learning styles have a tendency to be gender specific. How people process and discern information is the basis for their learning style. Understanding how individuals learn is an integral aspect of developing teaching strategies. The use of multimedia is appealing to most all types of learners, and may be tailored to specific topics and classroom settings. Multimedia has the ability to simplify concepts and present information in a way that is more conducive to various learning styles. Specifically in transportation engineering, the dilemma and decision zones are confusing concepts that may be clarified through the use of animation.
