To deliver quality education universities have to devise a proper and effective learning and teaching strategy. The aim of this strategy should be to develop the potential of learners, which can only be achieved through the provision of a learner-centred environment. This study was conducted at the National College of Ireland and focussed exclusively on developing the potential of the learner. First year students were assessed and evaluated to ascertain their learning styles using Kolb Learning Style Inventory. Faculty received induction on various learning techniques. Online environments were created to adapt content to student learning styles. Detailed strategy, its effectiveness, on line learning environment and results obtained are discussed in this paper.
