Developing online learning resources is expected to empower students to take charge of their learning, which leads to a standpoint that highlights motivational factors and, ultimately, academic achievement given the flexibility and accessibility of learning at any time and from anywhere. This study examines the extent to which these learning resources affect academic achievement, both directly and indirectly, through learning motivation in highly autonomous learning environments. Data is gathered from 100 student respondents who attend online tutorials at UPBJJ-UT Makassar in the academic year of 2018.2 and use the virtual reading room. Data collection deals with the use of a questionnaire, previously measured to comply with the principles of validity and reliability, and is processed into two-stage multiple regression. Findings show that both self-directed learning resources and learning motivation fit into “very good” response category, while academic achievement (measured by final examination scores) indicates a “good” strength of agreement. In terms of the effect, self-directed learning resources is statistically positive and significant in learning motivation. The same statistic applies in the correlation between the learning resources and academic achievement. This implies that the dynamic influence of self-regulated learning resources facilitates learning motivation and, in turn, contributes to online academic success. This study promotes long-lasting and self- sustaining motivation that navigates students toward desirable academic achievement through the sustainable development of learning resources in self-regulatory online environments.
