Have It Their Way: Creating Personalized Online Challenges to Motivate Learners
O'Neill, Barbara; Ensle, Karen
Journal of Extension, v50 n2 Article 2TOT3 Apr 2012
This article describes the development and evaluation of an online health and personal finance behavior change challenge that can be adapted for other Extension subject matter areas. The Small Steps to Health and Wealthâ„¢ Challenge is a behaviorally focused activity in which registered users self-report health and financial behaviors and receive feedback about their progress compared to other program participants. Ten daily practices are included, with 10 points awarded for each. Findings from two pilot tests in which participants were provided an opportunity to substitute their own daily challenge activities for those that were pre-selected by program sponsors are discussed.
