Motivational gamification strategies rooted in self-determination theory for social adaptive E-Learning.

Cristea, A. I. and Shi, Lei (2016) 'Motivational gamification strategies rooted in self-determination theory for social adaptive E-Learning.', in Intelligent Tutoring Systems, 13th International Conference, ITS 2016, Zagreb, Croatia, June 7-10, 2016, Proceedings. , pp. 294-300. Lecture Notes in Computer Science., 9684


This study uses gamification as the carrier of understanding the motivational benefits of applying the Self-Determination Theory (SDT) in social adaptive e-learning, by proposing motivational gamification strategies rooted in SDT, as well as developing and testing these strategies. Results show high perceived motivation amongst the students, and identify a high usability of the implementation, which supports the applicability of the proposed approach.
