Abstract:


As a key research area of E-learning Adaptive educational hypermedia system (AEHS) often takes into account the different aspects that influence the learning preference. However, adaptation based on the context of course/subject itself is seldom if not never considered. The study was conducted using a questionnaire on 73 undergraduate students from University of Malays. This paper aim to compare student’s learning preference with regards to individual learning style and context of 3 courses. Data analysis was done to assess the association of both learning style and course context with the learning preference of undergraduate students. The results shown that course context has more significant outcome as compared to learning style. Therefore, apart from individual learning styles, course context should be considered as well when developing an AEHS.
