Increasing Student Satisfaction with a Personality-Based Personalized Learning Path
Abstract: Online courses have integrated into higher education curriculum, particularly with the spread of COVID-19 across the world. Yet, despite their benefits, they may not suit all learners. Personality influences learner satisfaction. With today's technology, learning processes can be personalized for different personality types and even affects satisfaction levels with online learning activities. This study explores the relationships between personality traits and student satisfaction with Techno-Pedagogical Learning Solutions (TPLS). Questionnaires were used to measure the satisfaction level and personality types of 108 students enrolled in a fully online course. Significant correlations were found between variables. The findings clearly indicate that personality plays a significant role in online learner satisfaction. Thus, personality traits should be considered when designing personalized learning activities. The assumption that different personalities require different learning solutions may help in designing online courses, such that no learner is left behind, regardless of attitude toward online learning.
