dc.description.abstractThe purpose of the research is to identify individual learners' preferences in an online or on-the-job training environment. The goal of the project is to determine the outcome of an individual's learning style that best fits their interest. By identifying an individual's learning style, the instructional materials can be adjusted to best fit the needs of the learners. An email survey was used, where the preferred learning style of each individual was determined. By identifying how learners preferred to learn, this research highlights that adapting to the learners' preferences for training, using online or on-the-job training, will retain the knowledge, skills, and abilities to perform a task as well as retain information better. Individuals were evaluated based on a nine question survey designed to analyze the data collected from a sample of 50 Blugold Beginning members in Eau Claire, WI. It was found that individuals in Blugold Beginnings prefer to learn on-the-job rather than online. Individuals also reported that on-the-job training will provide them with better retention of the information and be more exposed to gain the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to perform a task.en_US
