Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Learning Effectiveness [ Time Frame: 3 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    This study will explore the use of a cognitive rehabilitation approach as suggested by Gardner's Multiple Intelligences for its potential application to online course design for brain injured patients/students. It involves designing instruction for a science unit based on four of Canfield's learning styles.
