Abstract

Motivation is an important factor in the learning and teaching environment to ensure students‟ continuous learning. In the adults learning style, Self-directed Learning (SDL) is the most popular method to be implemented. Nowadays in the ICT era, online learning will replace the conventional, or face-to-face learning for a variety of reasons. In this paper, the authors identify and determine the appropriate learning instruction to be designed and embedded in online self-directed learning based on the online SDL model developed by Song and Hill, 2007. The research respondents comprised 239 diploma students on a mechanical engineering course at a polytechnic under the Ministry of higher Education, Malaysia. This study identifies the effect of online self-directed learning on students‟ motivation. Therefore, it can be concluded that online SDL can have a positive impact on the enhancement of students‟ motivation. The findings of this research show an increase in the level of student motivation after implementation of online SDL
