Abstract

Emotion is considered to be a crucial factor for students to engage in e-Learning. Research on emotional presence, however, is still in an early stage and no scale has yet been developed to measure emotional presence. Through a literature review on emotion and emotional presence, three theoretical constructs – feeling, expressing, and managing emotion - were identified. The scale was previously validated and modified through the preliminary study with 418 college students. This paper reports the re-validation process of the scale by administering it to 305 students. The result confirms the three constructs with different groupings of the measurement items.
