Results of a study conducted with medical students at Queen’s University Belfast that explored the perceived obstacles to elearning engagement.

This study used focus groups as a data collection tool using 31 students.

Key themes that emerged from the data included a sense of injustice, passivity and a feeling of being ‘lost at sea’.

The identified themes have strong emotional foundations. These responses, interpreted through the lens of achievement emotions, have not previously been described. Appreciation of their importance is of benefit to educators involved in curriculum development or delivery.
