According to research, motivation is one of the key factors that influence course completion rates. In this chat, Tonka Jokelova, Ph.D., Coordinator of Curriculum and Instructional design at the SUNY Empire State College's Center for Distance Learning, will introduce the ARCS motivational model and some practical ways how it can be used in online education. ARCS motivational model is a course design and teaching approach that proposes incorporating motivational strategies into learning environments in order to stimulate and sustain students' motivation to learn. The ARCS acronym stands for attention, relevance, confidence, and satisfaction. According to the model, for a student to become and stay motivated, all these four categories have to be addressed in the instruction. In Part 1 of the chat series, the participants will be introduced to the first two components of the model (Attention and Relevance) and their use in the online course design and instruction. Practical examples and ideas will be proposed and discussed in both parts of the series.
