The purpose of this study was to explore the influence of different learning styles and instructor-students interactive modes on learning effect in programming design course. The results of this experimental teaching method demonstrated that: (a) using our designed instant messaging (IM) functions combined with the learning style of Accommodator and Converger students was significantly better than others, (b) learning styles significantly affected learning effect, and (c) instructor-students interactive modes significantly affected learning effect while using our designed IM functions was better than Non-IM. According to the results of this study, the author provides some suggestions for teaching the programming design course.
