Motivating students has always been one of the toughest aspects of teaching. This challenge is set to grow in the online classroom, which requires the use of a new set of learning and cognitive skills as well as better time management, and not to mention comes with distractions that take away from learning.

A student who is highly motivated is more apt to develop positive attitudes and behaviours towards online learning. It is important for educators to know how to encourage digital learners, so that students may be better equipped to navigate the multiple challenges that inhabit the online learning environment.
