The WebQuest model was developed with learner motivation in mind, but the principles that underlie that design have never been made explicit. Five models of motivation will be briefly described (Keller's ARCS model; Malone & Lepper's Theory of Fun; Csikszentmihalyi's Flow Theory; Ford's Motivation Systems Theory and Wlodkowski's Time Continuum Model). Each part of a standard WebQuest will be described in terms of the models with recommendations for design and research provided.
