KARSENTI, THIERRY; Université de Montréal, Canada

The goal of this research was to better understand the impact of the implementation of a compulsory Web-based course on preservice teacher motivation. Subjects were enrolled in a four-year teacher education program (n=429) in the province of Quebec (Canada). Our initial hypothesis was that the Web-based distance education course – designed to promote self-determination, affiliation, and a sense of competence – would positively impact the motivation of preservice teachers. Results presented are based on quantitative and qualitative data analysis. They demonstrate that a technologically rich learning environment can enhance motivation after only a few weeks. (EN)
