This study explores end-users’ e-learning experiences from several perspectives in order to learn about the how and why of their e-learning process with particular focus on their conative constructs and self-regulation. Research questions are targeting how novice e-learners manage their learning in a computer-based learning space.
The study was conducted at a media laboratory for content testing. Mixed methods were used to collect data and triangulated in the analyses. Methods used were questionnaires, eye tracking, screen recordings, observation, and a stimulated instant recall (SIR) interview. The SIR-interview ties the methods together by targeting in-depth qualities of users’ subjective experiences.
Different phases of analyses are described in the paper emphasizing how methods can be triangulated in order to create an authentic picture of e-learning experiences. The study is still work in progress intending to explore how theories of motivation and self-regulation are applicable to e-learning contexts, and how this can be used in further studies on how to evaluate e-learning environments.
