Dr. Diego Lopez presented on Formally Modeling Learning Styles in Medical Intelligent Tutoring Systems.
This was a strange study. The authors presented the following schema:
1. Watch students pick educational resources from a wide variety of styles
2. Their choices are tracked by a giant computer which uses an algorithm to determine their education style:
3. They then use the learning style to restrict the resources available to the student to the resources appropriate for their learning style.
