Media-supported learning scenarios achieve varying successful learn- ing results and consequently students evaluate them differently. The impact on learning success that gender, occupation, graduation level and especially learning styles of students may have is subject to this study. 555 students par- ticipated in a transnational cooperation between two universities by applying collaborative media in different e-business-courses since 2010. Thereby three different media-supported learning scenarios were compared: virtual case study, game-based simulation (Beer Game) and online peer review. The results of the accompanying study made clear that different learning settings benefit different learning types. Thus the major goal of the long-term study is to evaluate how specific learning patterns or the different learning types can be supported more specifically by the use of different learning methods. Such approach includes the potential of a better didactic support regarding the diversity of students.
