Factors Affecting Lecturers Motivation in Using Online Teaching Tools

Abstract

Motivation is the drive to will and desire to succeed or achieve something. Motivation in this treatment refers to when the lecturers feel the motivation in using online teaching tools in the classroom. Self-motivation of lecturers to change their teaching styles or methods is one of the problems stated by few researchers. The objective of this paper is to identify the factors that motivate lecturers to use online teaching tools, such as Web 2.0 tools. There are a variety of online teaching tools available to the lecturers. The popular tools are online whiteboard, WordPress, YouTube, Facebook, Edmodo and others. There are not many lecturers who apply the Internet as an alternative to provide access to information that can help to enhance teaching and learning materials. An evaluation of the lecturer's motivation had been completed by 30 lecturers from different subject matter experts. The instruments used were interview sessions and classroom observation, which were used to measure four motivation variables: ease of use, enjoyment, usefulness and self-confidence, based on the ARCS Motivation model. Based on the findings, factors that can affect lecturers’ motivation in using online teaching tools are knowledge, perceptions and skills.

Profiles in Science: Visual Culture and Health Posters

Profiles in Science: Visual Culture and Health Posters | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Public health has a long and distinguished visual record. From seventeenth-century engravings to the latest digital images, visual representations have played a critical role in educating the public about modern health crises. But what purposes do these images serve beyond their immediate role in disease prevention and health education? What do they tell us about the history of health care, or attitudes toward our bodies, or the world that we live in?


As part of its Profiles in Science project, the National Library of Medicine has digitized and made available over the World Wide Web a historical exhibit of Visual Culture and Health Posters for use by educators and researchers. This Web site provides access to the posters selected for inclusion in an exhibit designed for the NLM sponsored "Visual Culture and Public Health" symposium, held on October 16-17, 2003. Individuals interested in conducting research in the Visual Culture and Health Posters are invited to contact the National Library of Medicine.


This online Exhibit is designed to introduce you to the history of the Visual Culture and Health Posters in the twentieth century. It is divided into sections that focus on the subjects covered in the collection. We suggest that new visitors begin with this exhibit, which includes a small selection of visuals. Each section begins with a "Background Narrative," which leads to "Visuals."


Visitors may access additional materials through Search on the navigation bar. They may also view the materials alphabetically or chronologically by choosing Browse on the navigation bar. Visuals in these lists are arranged by format and then either alphabetically by title or chronologically.
