Evaluation of Learning Motivation within an Adaptive e-Learning Platform for Engineering Science

Mathias Bauer, Jacqueline Schuldt, Heidi Krömker

Abstract

Learning motivation represents an important determinant for a successful learning process. Especially in the context of self-regulated learning with e-learning systems learning blocks or learning breaks occur increasingly when motivation is dropping. Creating appropriate learning experiences that respond to learners’ needs is important to maintain learning motivation. This supports continuous usage of e-learning systems at universities. Adaptive e-learning systems are a possibility to react profoundly to individual needs of the learners before or during the learning process. Therefore, an e-learning platform for micro- and nanotechnologies was transformed into an adaptive learning system to foster learning motivation at the Technische Universität Ilmenau within a multi-level development process. Results showed that the e-learning platform was well accepted but a significant benefit of the adaptive version compared to the non-adaptive version could not be identified.
