The primary purpose ofthis research was to investigate the relationship between perceived learning styles ofthe eLearners and their preference of eLearning website features. The secondary purposes ofthis study was to research various models oflearning styles for examining learning styles and eLearning website Systems for studying eLearning website feature preferences ofthe eLearners. A broad research question was undertaken: What impact (if any) does an eLearner's learning style have on their preferences for specific features in an eLearning website system? To follow an exploratory line of investigation three research questions were used to examine the broad question: 1) How can an eLearning website system be meaningfully selected to study eLearning website features preference? 2) How can an eLearner's learning style be meaningfully categorised? 3) How do learning styles impact the eLearner's preference of eLearning website features? ·Unlike Research Question 1 and 2 that· were examined by mainly literature review, Research Question 3 was studied using a full-fledged empirical cycle involving setting up hypotheses, conducting a survey and analysing data using statistical methods.
