In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic transformed college teaching and learning from in-person to largely online. The platform Zoom alone jumped from some 10 million users in December 2019 to over 300 million by April 2020. But as Stanford University Communications Professor Jeremy Bailenson writes, “something about being on videoconference all day seems particularly exhausting,” and the term “Zoom fatigue” was coined and spread quickly (1). (In addition, over 94% of 325 undergraduates surveyed reported moderate to extreme difficulty with online learning (Peper 47).) However, this exhaustion has not been fully explained, although many theories have been offered.
