ARCS Design Process The ARCS motivational design process is a systematic problem solving approach that requires knowledge of human motivation and progresses from learner analysis to solution design. More specifically, the process includes: Knowing and identifying the elements of human motivation, Analyzing audience characteristics to determine motivational requirements, Identifying characteristics of instructional materials and processes that stimulate motivation, Selecting appropriate motivational tactics, and Applying and evaluating appropriate tactics.
