Abstract—E-learning has been extensively implemented in
universities and motivation is one of the important factors
contributing the successful learning. However, few studies focus
on the relationship between student motivation level and
academic performance in e-learning. Therefore, we explored
the relationship between motivation and academic achievement
among students in Thai universities. 115 social science students
filled in an instructional materials motivation survey and the
data was analyzed by using SPSS software. The majority of
students were found to have upper to medium motivation levels
in e-learning. Further, there was a weak, positive correlation
between motivation level and academic achievement, but it was
not statistically significant. More results are discussed in this
Index Terms—Motivation level, academic performance, e-learning, Thailand university.
