Almost 1.6 billion students across more than 200 countries have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has caused the greatest disruption in the history of global education. Over 94% of students worldwide have been impacted by school closures, which have had a profound impact on many aspects of our lives. With the implementation of various safety measures, new challenges emerge when restrictions loosen and schools reopen. A shift toward digital learning has been spurred by the abandonment of in-person instruction in many educational institutions. Notwithstanding its difficulties, the pandemic has made it possible to incorporate online learning. This article aims to provide a comprehensive report on the challenges experienced by the students during the pandemic. Data revealed that students experienced virtual fatigue and that their gender and socio-economic status has no influence to the said virtual exhaustion.
