Secondary Outcomes (explanation)
Achievement Emotions Questionnaire (AEQ). The following eight emotions were measured: enjoyment, hope, pride, anger, fear, shame, hopelessness, and boredom. The emotions varied in terms of valence and activation: positive activating (enjoyment, hope, and pride), negative activating (anger, anxiety, and shame), positive deactivating (not measure) and negative deactivating (hopelessness, boredom). Participants rated their emotions separately in relation to (1) their overall experience in the on campus-, respectively, the online-course. In total, emotion scales of the AEQ comprised 80 items.
