Menglong Li, Yujia Ren


As a basic specialized course for the major of Sports, “Sports Statistics” is featured by strong theoretical foundation and practical operations. However, there are some problems among students in the teaching of this course, such as insufficient learning motivation, low interest in learning, difficulties in understanding theoretical knowledge, and difficulties in mastering practical operations. Therefore, using the ARCS motivation model as the framework and combining the exploratory learning theory, a systematic ARCS (Attention, Relevance, Confidence, Satisfaction) Motivation Teaching Mode was proposed from the perspectives of Attention, Relevance, Confidence, and Satisfaction. The ARCS Motivation Teaching Mode was constructed from the aspects of system architecture, teaching methods, teaching approaches, effect evaluation, etc. and practically applied in the multimedia teaching of “Sports Statistics” in the four steps including Attention, Relevance, Confidence, and Satisfaction. The results show that the ARCS Motivation Teaching Mode can effectively promote students’ learning motivation, correct their learning attitude, and thereby achieve a positive teaching effect. It is an effective teaching mode for specialized course of Sports.
