Student Motivation as a Determining Factor of Online Education Effectiveness

17

Abstract

The article presents an analysis of the problems associated with student motivation when implementing the educational process in online format. It is revealed that the effectiveness of such training is greatly influenced by the motivation of students. It also characterizes the elements that make up students’ motivation, such as setting goals, time-management, structuring the environment, seeking help, strategic thinking, and self-esteem. Particularly emphasized is the significant difference in learning motivation depending on its format (traditional, online). It must be remembered that the educational process in any case remains a form of communication. Therefore, the opportunity to carry out various types of social interaction has a significant impact on the motivation of students. To formulate conclusions, the results of several empirical studies (foreign and domestic) conducted in this area were analyzed. This made it possible to more clearly characterize the reasons for the decrease in students’ interest when mastering disciplines in an online format. As a conclusion, the need to use the strengths of the Internet is substantiated, which makes it possible to obtain any information in order to increase the motivation of students, which will have a positive impact on the effectiveness of the entire educational process, carried out fully or partially using distance technologies.
