Udemy & User Motivation

I stumbled across the course, “User Motivation,” a lively RSA Animate which was adapted from Dan Pink’s talk at the RSA. While the video illustrates the hidden truths behind what truly motivates people, I was truly taken back by how absolutely clever and entertaining this video was. For instructors that have students that are auditory and visual learners, this is definitely a good example of how to keep your student engaged when teaching online.

    I love these visual lessons/presentations. Check out the VizThink community at vizthink.com. They have a lot of this visual learning material.

      Nice, thanks for the recommendation Daniel. I’ll definitely have to check that out. I’m enrolled in the Education Technology Certificate program at UCSD and we discussed four different learning preferences in the VARK model. Turns out that I’m a multi-modal learner (Visual, Aural, Reading, and Kinesthetic) – my strengths are in reading/writing and hands-on approaches. So as I watched this video I was really drawn into how well it was outlined and visual.
