This paper addresses the affective human experiences in terms of the emotions of South African teacher-students while attaining computer competencies for teaching and learning, and for ODL. The full mixed method study investigated how computers contribute towards affective experiences of disadvantaged teacher-students. The purposive sample related to a criterion-based selection of N=339 teacher students attending supplementary computer literacy training which not only entailed the attainment of pedagogical knowledge and skills, but also of basic computer literacy skills for teaching and learning. Affective coding methods investigated subjective qualities of human experience. Qualitative emotion coding identified n = 31 emotion codes that categorized n = 1235 instances of computer literacy learning emotions. Quantitized qualitative data were used to quantitatively prove the validity of n = 29 emotion codes, before trustworthy qualitative discussion of findings were reported. A two dimensional Model for Computer Literacy Learning Emotions was developed from the cumulative results. (Contains 5 tables and 3 figures.)
