RESOURCE: Improving Motivation in eLearning
Motivation has been and continues to be a widely studied area across many of life’s domains. Motivation is said to be the energizing force that initiates and sustains behavior and ultimately produces results. Many motivation theories focus on the amount of motivation, with a larger quantity said to result in improved outcomes. However, as educators we should not focus on generating more motivation from our learners but instead focus on creating conditions that facilitate the internalization of motivation from within our learners.
