Distance education is a challenge for educational institutions because the design of the content of their courses should get the attention of the different learning styles of the student community.

The VARK model provides a quantification of the learning styles of students. Evaluates four different sensory modalities (visual, auditory, reader writer, and kinesthetic), where each individual may have from one to four modes (with all their combinations) as learning style. The present study was to determine the VARK learning style of 66 distance education students from four different educational institutions in Mexico. The results show that 46% of students surveyed used basic reader writer modality (R) as the preferred channel of learning, 37% use kinesthesia and only 5% used the visual modality as a first choice of preference. These data suggest that it is desirable to implement multimodal virtual classrooms (learning environments that include tools that meet the different modalities VARK), when designing courses for virtual education in Mexico.
