In response to the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) global health pandemic, many employees transitioned to remote work, which included remote meetings. With this sudden shift, workers and the media began discussing videoconference fatigue, a potentially new phenomenon of feeling tired and exhausted attributed to a videoconference. In the present study, we examine the nature of videoconference fatigue, when this phenomenon occurs, and what videoconference characteristics are associated with…

TLDR
The fun factor was identified as the most important video conference quality that can enhance the social presence of the video conference participants of MICEs and the feeling of being present with the presenter and participants was found to affect the participants’ flow in the video conferencing.
Understanding videoconference fatigue: a systematic review of dimensions, antecedents and theories
PurposeWhile videoconferencing has allowed for meetings to continue in a virtual space without the need for face-to-face interaction, there have been increasing reports of individuals affected by a
Technological Factors Influencing Videoconferencing and Zoom Fatigue
TLDR
The present paper expands on the technological factors dimension descriptions provided in the overall model paper and provides more detailed analyzes and concepts associated with how VC technology may affect users’ perception, cognitive load, interaction and communication, possibly leading to stress, exhaustion and fatigue.
Active methodologies association with online learning fatigue among medical students
Background Due to the current scenario of the COVID-19 pandemic and the social distancing issues, distance learning was implemented in many medical schools. Educational institutions faced the

From dawn till dusk: Shedding light on the recovery process by investigating daily change patterns in fatigue.
TLDR
The present article builds on recovery theory and on evidence from chronobiological research and adopts a temporal research approach that allows investigating change trajectories in fatigue over the course of the day, and the role of sleep quality and psychological detachment in these change trajectoryories is investigated.
Episodic work-family conflict and strain: A dynamic perspective.
TLDR
Lagged analyses showed some evidence that negative mood predicts work- family conflict occurrence within the next few hours, and evidence that state negative affect increases throughout the day as work-to-family conflict episodes accumulate.
Working in a pandemic: Exploring the impact of COVID-19 health anxiety on work, family, and health outcomes.
TLDR
This research represents a first step to understanding the work-, home-, and health-related implications of this unprecedented situation, highlighting the detrimental impact of the anxiety stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.
A multifaceted investigation of the link between mental fatigue and task disengagement.
TLDR
Results show that, with increasing fatigue and time-on-task, performance, P3 amplitude, and pupil diameter decreased, and this is interpreted as support for a strong link between task disengagement and mental fatigue.
Development and Validation of a Scale to Measure Work-Related Fatigue and Recovery: The Occupational Fatigue Exhaustion/Recovery Scale (OFER)
TLDR
These studies confirm the mediating role of intershift-shift recovery in the evolution of adaptive end-of-shift fatigue states to maladaptive persistent fatigue traits and suggest the OFER scale is suggested as a potentially valuable new tool for use in work-related fatigue research.
The trajectory of loneliness in response to COVID-19.
TLDR
There was no large increase in loneliness but remarkable resilience in response to COVID-19, and individuals living alone and those with at least one chronic condition reported feeling lonelier at baseline but did not increase inoneliness during the implementation of social distancing measures.
"Well, I'm tired of tryin'!" Organizational citizenship behavior and citizenship fatigue.
TLDR
It is found that the relationship between OCB and citizenship fatigue depends on levels of perceived organizational support, quality of team-member exchange relationships, and pressure to engage in OCB.
Unplugging or staying connected? Examining the nature, antecedents, and consequences of profiles of daily recovery experiences.
TLDR
This study examines whether profiles of daily recovery experiences occur for employees, and how these profiles vary in membership from one day to the next, are differentiated by daily job demands and resources experienced at work, and predict employee well-being and discretionary behaviors during the subsequent workday.
