Abstract

Prior research indicates that students often experience negative emotions while using online learning environments, and that most of these negative emotions can have a detrimental impact on their behavior and learning outcomes. We investigate the impact of a particular intervention, namely face-to-face collaboration with a neighboring student, on student boredom and frustration. The data comes from a study with 106 middle school students interacting with a mathematics tutor that provided varying levels of collaboration. Students were randomly assigned to a collaboration or no-collaboration condition. Collaboration was associated with reduced boredom: Students who collaborated more frequently reported increased interest.
