This article aims to analyze the features on the lack of affection, reveal the causes of it and try to give corresponding solutions. The results indicate that lack of affection have manifested themselves mainly on lacking affinity for the resources of the network courses, being deficient in emotional information in virtual communication, being careless with emotional communication, the commercialized relations between teachers and students, and the lack of positive emotion.
