    Abstract :

    The revolution bought in the learning process with the aid of technology is E-learning, we hope to achieve efficiencies and effectiveness through e-learning that are not present currently. In this paper we aim at comparing the effects of instructor based traditional learning against E-learning on the students on the basis of their learning styles. We also wish to identify if the methodology of E-learning would be more beneficial for students that have specific styles of learning’s. LSI (Kolb Learning Style Inventory) is used for measuring the student’s learning style. On the basis of the exposure to a specific learning style and the subject this intact group, post-test design, examined wise learning patterns dependent variables of student knowledge. It was identified that the learning style played an important part in the e-learning environment, even though it did not have much effect in the traditional learning environments. We learnt that web based (e-learning) environment were best suited for students that have Converged (learning trough observation, field work and laboratories) and Assimilator(learning through analogies, papers and lectures) learning styles.
