Abstract

Anxiety, an emotional state, in elearning affects student’s performance beyond the technophobic state, due to the fact that there is more at stake in elearning. These anxieties not only occur with the online course content interaction, but also in terms of productivity, learning risk, social relationships, and overall well-being. In this study, we select intrinsic motivation as an outcome that is influenced by challenge and mediated by anxiety. 565 students participated in this study showing significant influence of challenge and anxiety on intrinsic motivation. However, anxiety did not mediate the influence of challenge on intrinsic motivation. The results were discussed and recommendations for future research are presented.
