do these quotations have in common?
fundamental qualities of human motivation and persistence: the desires
for adventure, for explorations into the unknown, for expanding our
boundaries of knowledge, feeling and understanding, and for having the
persistence and courage to conquer personal and world obstacles that
might otherwise impede these quests.
Term and Immediate Goals
of this website is to become a gathering place for people who are trying
to gain a better understanding of these human qualities, or, in other
words, of the essence of human motivation and volition. At present,
this prototype version of the website is primarily a source of information
about one particular motivational theory and process for systematic
motivational design (the ARCS Model), about people engaged in inquiry
about motivation and how to influence it, and about areas of motivational
research that are closely related to the ARCS model. In time, I expect
to expand this site to include more interactive elements to assist in
the growth and dissemination of knowledge and experience among researchers,
designers, and teachers who are interested in this fundamental component
of the human condition.
the pages of this website to learn about the concept of motivational
design, the theoretical foundation of the ARCS model, the systematic
motivational design process, examples of ARCS-related research areas,
and a few of the places and people associated with ARCS-related studies
send any suggestions for content or modifications to email@example.com.
