Motivation is a critical component of learning. Motivation is important in getting students to engage in academic activities. It is also important in determining how much students will learn from the activities they perform or the information to which they will be exposed to. Students who are motivated to learn something use higher cognitive processes in learning about it. Learning environments and course designs that leverage intrinsic motivation — student curiosity and interest — improve the quality of students’ learning.
