This paper describes the development and evaluation of a system called MORE (Motivational Reactive Plan) in the 1990s, designed with an explicit strategy to manage the learner’s motivation on a minute-by-minute basis. Progress since the system was evaluated is outlined and our current thinking on the larger issues of the role that the learner’s values play in motivation as well as issues around “learning how to learn” and meta-motivation is sketched.
