Passing an Online Course: Does Gardner’s Intelligence Matter?


According to Gardner, each person possesses varying degrees of several intelligences such as language, musical thinking, logical mathematical analysis, spatial representation, and kinesthetic learning. Plainly explained, people are all smart in different ways (Campbell, 2004). The purpose of this quantitative descriptive research study is to determine if applying the theory of Gardner’s Intelligences to the on-line classroom for adult learners will affect the number of students who pass courses. Master’s level students participating in this study will indicate whether or not curriculum incorporates a variety of activities that support multiple intelligences to enhance learning outcomes in an on-line course and fosters passing. Based on the identification of his her strongest intelligence through an inventory, students will indicate whether or not elements in the instruction contributes to better understanding and application of the concepts being presented in the course.
