Abstract

Motivation is an essential element for successful learning, the process of goal setting can be an important source of motivation. On the other hand, video games can also motivate students' learning motivation. Thus, this study designed a negotiation mechanism in a game-based learning environment to increase students' learning motivation. Game was used to initiate students' learning motivation and provide feedbacks. The negotiation mechanism was used to help students set learning goals to maintain their learning motivation. The results showed that the game environment engage students in the learning tasks and helped low-confidence students improve their self-efficacy.
