Abstract: The trend of using Adaptive Web-based e-Learning (AWBL) as an educational platform is increasing in corporations, universities, and industries. The dream of teaching and learning from anywhere, at anytime becomes reality with the construction of the AWBL environments. Seldome research can be found in the literature to link pedagogy & technology to involve eLearning subjects to enhance learning. The research aim was to construct a logically design framework of AWBL. The objectives were to identify learning style of engineering students’; to determine learning preferences, experiences & age-levels of learners, and to identify the preferred instructional strategies. 477 students have given the opinions by questinarries. The findings revealed that TVET learners are converging-type, whose learning preferences were slove problems, theories etc., & experienced on authentic-learning activity and their preferred instructional strategy was problem-solving. This research suggests to address those ingrediants in design AWBL environment to increase the value of learning.
