Abstract

Do the traditional classroom-based learning motivational methods that are considered to be valid, also work in e-learning community? In this study we applied the traditional learning motivational methods to an e-learning community service which is actually used by some 187,000 students. We took log records and implemented questionnaire surveys, and examined obtained data. This time we tested in three methods – ‘Competition’, ‘Immediate Feedback’, and ‘Reward’ – during certain period. We used these three methods because they can be easily merged with the Web community. The test results have confirmed that the three methods used in this study were all effective to promote study in e-learning. In terms of effectiveness in motivating, we confirmed that ?’Reward’ was the highest, followed by ?’Competition’ and ?’Immediate Feedback’ in e-learning community. There are no differences in children’s reactions between in classroom and in e-learning. Therefore, we can assume that other methods could also be effectively used in e-learning community.
