Emotion plays a critical role in learning, including the online learning experience. However, without the proper tools for engagement, online learning can be an isolating experience. The importance of emotion in teaching and learning is as essential to consider as the curriculum itself. Instructors should consider strategies for promoting emotional presence and engagement in online learning environments and the ways in which emotions influence student's motivation, decision making, and ultimately, the learning process. The chapter provides an overview of the importance of considering the connection between emotion and online learning as well as some of the research that addresses the ways in which to create emotionally sound online courses where the emotional needs of online learners are met.
