Abstract

This study reports on motivation factors for student engagement with an electronic learning system designed for general organic chemistry courses. Engagement is proposed as a simple and broadly applicable parameter against which student motivations can be evaluated. Self-efficacy correlates most strongly with course performance, but self-determination correlates most strongly with engagement. General extrinsic and intrinsic motivation factors exhibit very weak correlations with both performance and engagement, suggesting that future work should focus identifying system-specific motivation factors.
