Abstract

With the advent of the information age, a video-oriented interactive method (Danmaku/Bouncer) has become popular. Due to the unique function and outstanding performance of "Danmaku" in the network, it has been rapidly adopted by several major domestic mainstream media (Bilibili, Youku, Tencent, etc.). Based on relevant educational theories and using the Bilibili website as a representative case, this study analyses in detail the motivation of students' participation in Danmaku through Danmaku on the Bilibili website through the use of research methods such as comprehensive analysis, literature reading. The study concludes that students engage in self-directed learning through Danmaku and make full use of them in order to eliminate the sense of isolation and distance brought by online learning. The article aims to analyse the relevant theories and behaviours to provide an in-depth analysis and understanding of the factors used by students to enhance the satisfaction of self-directed learning.
