In today's dynamic Higher Education landscape, characterized by self-directed learning models like flipped and blended approaches, nurturing student engagement with asynchronous learning resources has gained prominence. While intrinsic motivation traditionally takes the limelight in discussions on student drive, our investigation within a Sino-British university's foundation year context in China reveals a more nuanced interplay. This study examines the interplay between intrinsic and extrinsic motivational approaches used by educators, revealing catalysts that influence student action. Focused on student interaction with online asynchronous learning materials, our research employs a two-phase action research cycle, analyzing the immediate and enduring effects of motivational interventions by teachers. Combining quantitative and qualitative methods, we study the experiences of 80 foundation year students, highlighting the effectiveness of extrinsic motivation and the significance of understanding students' prior educational paths. This nuanced understanding guides the tailoring of strategies that enhance engagement and facilitate adaptation to new learning environments. Our study offers a pedagogical guide for educators, demonstrating how a nuanced grasp of student experiences informs the modification of pedagogical approaches, enabling students to readily embrace asynchronous materials and enhancing the success of modern learning methods.
