Flexible learning is concerned with giving learners a flexible approach to learning. More specifically, flexible learning enables learners to choose where, when, and how they learn. In order to improve the quality of flexible learning, we must meet an increasing number of learners’ (increasingly demanding) requirements. One example of such a requirement is increased motivation and enjoyment. By demonstrating how this requirement may be fulfilled, this paper will show how the quality of flexible learning may be improved. This paper briefly describes the flow model, the key to fulfilling this requirement, and outlines an approach to create the necessary conditions. It also gives a description of an evaluation of the approach.
