codeparc is a leader when it comes to desktop and micro-location-based mobile e-learning (beacon technology). We help businesses improve their performance through learning and technology. We design award-winning learning solutions that deliver measurable results. These solutions range from custom e-learning to accredited programmes to hosted learning management platforms.
codeparc's system modules and all oft its contents follow the ARCS model of motivational design, which was created by John Keller while he was researching ways to supplement the learning process with motivation. The model consists of four main areas: attention, relevance, confidence, and satisfaction.
Micro-location-based E-Learning is a true revolutionary feature for the whole E-Learning environment. This function allows the learning - depending on the setting of the system - to complete the corresponding tests only in a specific environment.
The attention mentioned in this theory refers to the interest displayed by learners in taking in the concepts/ideas being taught. This component is split into three categories: perceptual arousal, using surprise or uncertain situations; inquiry arousal, offering challenging questions and/or problems to answer/solve; and variability, using a variety of resources and methods of teaching.
Relevance must be established by using language and examples that the learners are familiar with. The 3 major strategies are: goal orientation, motive matching, and familiarity.
The confidence aspect of the ARCS model focuses on establishing positive expectations for achieving success among learners. The confidence level of learners is often correlated with motivation and the amount of effort put forth in reaching a performance objective. For this reason, it’s important that learning design provides students with a method for estimating their probability of success. This can be achieved in the form of a syllabus and grading policy, rubrics, or a time estimate to complete tasks. Additionally, confidence is built when positive reinforcement for personal achievements is given through timely, relevant feedback.
Finally, learners must obtain some type of satisfaction or reward from a learning experience. This satisfaction can be from a sense of achievement, praise from a higher-up, or mere entertainment. Feedback and reinforcement are important elements and when learners appreciate the results, they will be motivated to learn. Satisfaction is based upon motivation, which can be intrinsic or extrinsic.
