Create Compelling Content Based on Learning Styles
This is a good read.


What do Tiger Woods, Tom Cruise, Jim Carrey, and Serena Williams have in common? The answer lies in how they learn.

Teach them to act or play their respective sports by showing them how to do it and they would quickly become more lost than an agoraphobic at a protest march.

The only real way certain people improve is by doing. Give Carrey an audio script and you'll have more luck getting the European jobless rates down than him to learn his lines.

The key to understanding why this is the case is to dive into the world of learning styles and a key aspect of any content strategy for businesses that rely on playing a part in any creative or learning process in people's lives.

That covers a vast array of different types of business; from HR and insurance through to equipment retailers and back again; everybody can add value and help their customer improve their knowledge about what they do.

Way back in my college days..I wrote a paper debunking or at least calling into question the validity of catering to Learning Styles. It got published in the student paper and it earned me the wrath of the Psychology department and a healthy respect for other peoples opinions.

that said, I think that simply creating a nice variety of content should do the trick without making things more complicated.
