This study attempts to evaluate the distribution of learning styles of students in online distance education courses versus those who are enrolled in traditional in-class courses. One hundred and one undergraduate students from three universities were administered the Learning Styles Inventory (LSI) developed by Kolb (1976). Students learning styles were determined as convergent, divergent, assimilative, or accommodative respectively. The analysis revealed no significant differences in distribution of Learning Styles in online distance education courses versus students enrolled in traditional courses. Based on these results, important prescriptions may be made regarding online course instruction based on Kolb's (1984) theoretical and applied methods.
