A general model for motivational design of instruction is described and reviewed in terms of its application to E-learning contexts. Following a description of what is meant by E-learning environments and an overview of the four category model and design process known as the ARCS model, a variety of studies are summarized. The ARCS model is based on a(More)
Every educator knows the challenge of stimulating and sustaining learner motivation and the difficulty of finding reliable and valid methods for motivating learners. One approach to meeting this challenge is provided by the ARCS model of motivation (Keller, 1999a, b) which provides guidance for analyzing the motivational characteristics of a group of(More)
SUMMARY The purpose of this paper is to describe the flight crew procedures for commercial jet instrument approaches in order to aid in the development of pilot computational models and for evaluation of new cockpit display technologies. New SVS displays were evaluated based on pilot performance and workload and were compared to a baseline (no SVS)(More)
We suggest that the existence of many of the rock-carved trails at Racetrack Playa in Death Valley National Park is predominantly due to the effect of arbitrarily weak winds on rocks that are floated off the soft bed by small rafts of ice, as also occurs in arctic tidal beaches to form boulder barricades. These ice cakes need not have a particularly large(More)
ChanMin Kim is a doctoral candidate in Instructional Systems at Florida State University and has conducted research on the integration of motivational and volitional strategies to improve learner motivation and achievement. She is currently expanding her research to include change management theory with motivation and volition to develop a process for(More)
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is the first mission in NASA's Vision for Space Exploration, a plan to return to the moon and then to travel to Mars and beyond. LRO will launch in late 2008 with the objectives to finding safe landing sites, locate potential resources, characterize the radiation environment, and demonstrate new technology. The(More)
This study tested strategies incorporating change management, motivational, and volitional characteristics in order to facilitate positive attitudes toward engineering. In an introductory engineering course, the strategies were distributed via email to two groups: one received the strategies with an animated pedagogical agent (Agent-MVM) and the other(More)
