Whether you have an eLearner on Zoom or are in video calls for work, screen fatigue happens. A worthwhile read is from the Harvard Business Review, "How to Combat Zoom Fatigue". There are several suggestions, and the two that may help an eLearner are:
- Avoid multitasking - Researchers at Stanford found that people who multitask can't remember things as well as their more singularly focused peers. The next time you're on a video chat, close any tabs or programs that might distract you (e.g., your inbox, Amazon, a game), put your phone away, and stay present.
- Take Breaks - if you can't take a break, try the 20-20-20 exercise. Every 20 minutes, look away from your screen 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
