This thesis describes an investigation into the ways in which learning using a multimedia application can be supported and enhanced by means of a co-operative student model of learner characteristics. The hypothesis investigated was that learning with multimedia requires the application of a student model and individual configuration in order to increase the quality of learning. The work consisted of a series of experiments performed to establish the effectiveness of the descriptors used within the student model, language and cognitive style, followed by a large scale study in the use of an individually configurable multimedia application.
