Procrastination is a very complex phenomenon. It depends on a variety of external and internal factors and can therefore have very individual characteristics. In addition, many studies point out that a standardised research method for the context and the research period is usually not sufficient to get a really detailed picture. In fact, it is assumed that a large proportion of the international student population is affected. In addition, the use of the Internet plays a strong reinforcing role in this context. The complexity of the issue requires a comprehensive analysis.
A thorough examination of the existing literature was conducted in order to evaluate several dimensions of procrastination. This study sought to investigate the impact of internet usage on many dimensions, including neurological, psychological, and addiction-related factors, and their potential influence on procrastination. One crucial aspect of this study involved the creation of a mobile application designed to address procrastination among students. This application serves as a comprehensive intervention tool and can be supplemented by a cognitive-based solution approach.
The findings indicate that procrastination is a complex issue that can be effectively tackled through the implementation of proactive assistance and educational interventions. Furthermore, this observation serves to highlight the detrimental implications associated with the utilization of the Internet as a whole, specifically with regards to its propensity for fostering addictive behaviors within the realm of procrastination. The mobile application that has been developed encompasses a variety of elements, which have been derived from existing literature and evaluated by a comprehensive survey. The primary objective of these features is to mitigate the tendency of individuals to engage in procrastinatory behavior. This program is anticipated to be utilized by educational institutions, specifically the FHNW, for the purpose of gathering and analyzing data pertaining to procrastination. The primary advantage lies in the potential mitigation of academic procrastination and the enhancement of student achievement. This research offers potential benefits for educational institutions as it enables the development of focused interventions aimed at enhancing students' learning behavior.
