This paper investigated the analysis of student learning preferences and the use of SMS text messaging system in the classroom to engage students in the subject matter being taught. Myers-Briggs Personality type indicator was used as a measure of learning preferences. This study specifically examined whether or not the learning preferences of students influenced their decision to use the SMS text messaging system. The results of the study found that studentsí learning preferences were not related to the studentís general engagement to use the SMS text messaging system.
