Abstract
This chapter addresses the issue of marketing higher education institutions through education agents, focusing on ways to gain a competitive advantage over other institutions in the context of increasing global competition while maintaining close management and governance of this distribution channel. Qualitative in-depth interviews were conducted with 31 Australian university international marketing managers and staff, and 16 education agents based in Australia and overseas. The findings show seven main themes, namely, service and support, joint promotion, incentives, training, gifts, social activities, and relationship enhancement. The contributions of this chapter are the provision of experiences, ideas, attitudes, and perspectives of how Australian universities work in partnership with education agents throughout the world to recruit international students in an increasingly competitive marketplace, whilst ensuring obligations are met under Australian international education legislation. This chapter provides marketing specialists, educational administrators, and policy makers with practical real life examples of motivational and management techniques.

Supporting Self-Regulated Learning with ICT
A dynamic mental state associated with the desire and willingness to exert effort towards the achievement of a goal. A motivated person is one that strives to achieve his/her aim, be it short or long term. Being a mental state, motivation is a function of the person, but being a dynamic state, it is also a function of the situation. According to Atkinson & Feather (1966), a student’s motivation to invest time and effort in learning depends on his or her expectations of success and on the perceived value of good achievement. Some authors, such as Kuhl (2000), see lack of motivation like a consequence, rather than a cause, of performance deficits that occur when people repeatedly face failure. This leads to the distinction between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. The former is when people engage in an activity because they like it or they are deeply interested in it. The latter has to do with obtaining external rewards like praise, money or good grades, as well as avoiding punishment or damage. In general, intrinsic motivation leads to deep learning, while extrinsic motivation might entail rote or performance oriented-learning. However, the potential of extrinsic motivation should not be underestimated because intrinsic motivation is easily endangered by many external factors, such as for example the need for money.
