Yu-Shan Chang


The purpose of this study was to investigate the predictability of cloud-based m-learning for creative performance, and the mediating effect of motivation. The participants were 116 college students, who participated in the pre-test and post-test of a teaching experiment. The conclusions of this study are as follows: (1) cloud-based m-learning has a significant positive effect on the motivation of students, particularly on expectancy and affect; (2) cloud-based m-learning has a significant effect on the creative performance of students, particularly on elaboration and novelty; and (3) cloud-based m-learning exhibits predictability for creative performance and affects creative performance through using motivation as a mediator.
