There's a lot of info on the Internet about learning styles. We're working on sorting through it and presenting what we consider the best of the best. We'll continue adding to this list. If you have a site you find helpful and think it should be included in our collection, let us know.
Be sure to check out these resources:
From About.com's Guide to Homework/Study Tips, Grace Fleming, comes this list of characteristics that define visual learners. She includes learning techniques, and best and worst kinds of tests for visual learners.

This is Neil Fleming's VARK model of learning styles: v
isual learning (pictures, movies, diagrams), a
uditory learning (music, discussion, lectures), r
eading and writing (making lists, reading textbooks, taking notes), or k
inesthetic learning (movement, experiments, hands-on activities). At vark-learn.com, he offers an interesting graphic depicting learning strategies for visual learners, something I haven't seen elsewhere.
The Science Education Resource Center at Carleton College in Northfield, MN presents a very interesting piece on how to teach with visualizations, including why its important and how to go about it. The site also offers a list of impressive examples. You'll have fun with this one.
ILSA, International Learning Styles Australasia, presents one of the most comprehensive tables of strategies we've seen anywhere. It includes some great ideas like video conferencing, cartoons, and graffiti walls.
