Understanding the Effects of Gamified Feedback in Mobile Learning – An Experimental Investigation
Mobile learning, offering learning anytime and anywhere, is becoming increasingly important for learning in the working process or on-the-go. However, mobile learning may overwhelm the learner due to its use in physical environments and demand for highly motivated learners. Therefore, gamified feedback is a promising way to both motivate learners and drive learning success. Nonetheless, systematic insights are missing on how to design gamified feedback for mobile learning. To investigate how gamified feedback contributes to motivation and learning success, we first develop a theoretical model based on ARCS and cognitive load theory. Second, we propose an experimental approach to analyze the effects of gamified feedback on motivation and learning success. Overall, we expect to better understand the effects of gamified feedback in mobile learning as a theoretical contribution with our experimental investigation. Finally, we aim to provide practical implications for mobile learning developers on how to use gamified feedback in the learning processes.
