Self-regulated learning (SRL) refers to an ability of learners to actively and intentionally set goals for their learning and to monitor, regulate, control, and evaluate their cognition, behavior, motivation, and environments to achieve those goals (Pintrich, 2004; Zimmerman, 2000). SRL was one of the

hottest topics of study from the 1980s to early 2000s, especially among educational psychologists. Recently SRL has once again gained much attention in the field of education, which can be understood by the growing interest in learner-centered instruction and the development of empowering educational technologies.
