Targeting Motivation--Adapting Flow Theory to Instructional Design.
Chan, Tom S.; Ahern, Terence C.
Journal of Educational Computing Research, v21 n2 p151-63 1999
Investigates the effect of activity content, its presentation, and the interactions between the two on flow experience (intrinsic motivation) in instructional activity. Results suggest that activity content has major influences on motivation; hypermedia presentations can add to motivation if used appropriately, or they can be distracting if too complex. Three tables show data. (AEF)
