Abstract

With the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, different teaching methods are adopted by higher education institutions to adapt to this global change. Since e-learning and blended learning methods reduce the demand for face-to-face courses, they became a mainstream teaching method applied by higher education in this special period. Meanwhile, some issues about lacking motivation, which is a significant factor for learning, during the Covid-19 period were reported by several scholars even with new teaching methods. As a result, this article mainly focuses on these two methods and compares the impact of blended learning and E-learning on students’ learning motivation. By reviewing the previous literature, it is found that the long-term teaching method of e-learning would make some students lack the sense of being in the community, which leads to the reduction of learning motivation. While blended learning can improve learning motivation to a certain extent.
