Design Principles for Real-world Action Mobile Green ApplicationsHaoxing Lu, M.A. in Instructional Technology and Media
With the rise of increasingly serious environmental problems in last decade, people are more and more concerned about climate change issues. However, even though people are aware of the environmental problems, most of them are not taking actions in real world. This paper reviews the barriers of taking real-world actions against climate change as well as mobile learning, motivation theories, behavior change theories and gamification. By analyzing three existing mobile green apps based on the theories reviewed, solutions have been discussed to overcome the barriers. Design principles for action-oriented green apps have been concluded and proposed according to the analysis and solutions. Mobile green apps refer to applications, for smartphone/mobile platform, focused on the environment and sustainability. The purpose of this paper is to propose design principles for action-oriented green apps. Exploring Learner Self-regulation and Motivation in MOOC environment.
