Abstract [sv]

Lärplattformar används idag i allt större utsträckning vid distansundervisning. Forskning pekar på att lärstilar är en viktig faktor att ta hänsyn till vid distansundervisning, dock är området beträffande lärstilar i relation till lärplattformar relativt outforskat, och det saknas tydlig vetskap om hur lärplattformar kan designas för att stödja olika lärstilar. Den här studien undersöker lärstilar i relation till funktioner i lärplattformar, genom en explorativ ansats och studie med designinslag. Utifrån en litteraturstudie identifierades funktioner i en lärplattform, vilka ställdes i relation till Kolbs teori om lärstilar för att mynna ut i ett antal rekommendationer för undervisning och användning av funktioner, som låg till grund för utformning av en prototyp. Prototypen fungerade som underlag för den empiriska undersökningen, vilken genom intervjuer utgjorde prövning av rekommendationernas relevans, samt kartläggning av hur funktioner i lärplattformar stödjer olika lärstilar vid användning. Studienresulterade i åtta designriktlinjer, och bidrar till den brist som idag råder i fråga om hur lärplattformar kan designas för att stödja olika lärstilar.

Abstract [en]

Learning management systems are currently used increasingly in distance education. Research indicates that learning styles are important factors to consider in distance education, however, the area regarding learning styles in relation to learning management systems is relatively unexplored, and there is no clear knowledge of how learning management systems can be designed to support different learning styles. This study investigates learning styles in relation to the features in learning management systems, through an explorative approach and study with design elements. Based on a literature study we identified features of a learning management system, which was put in relation to Kolb's theory of learning styles in order to lead to a number of recommendations for education and use of features, which formed the basis for the design of a prototype. The prototype served as the basis for the empirical investigation, in which interviews constituted testing of the relevance of the recommendations, and the mapping of the features of the learning management system to support different learning styles in use. The study resulted in eight design guidelines, and contributes to the shortage that currently exists in terms of how learning management systems can be designed to support different learning styles.
