Abstract: With an increase in remote learning, there are more cases of fatigue in remote learning. However, there is not much research established yet. Hence, this project aims to investigation of how fatigue affects information capture in remote learning. Using eye analysis, parameters including zero fixation count, zero fixation duration, blink count and blink duration are used to quantify either visual or memory fatigue. On the other hand memory performance is based on the scores obtained during the experiments. Memory fatigue experiments are then carried out using 2x2, 3x3 and 4x4 boxes . Based on the results, 13 out of 15 subjects felt moderately fatigue at least. There seemed to be a strong correlation between perceived difficulty in absorbing information and perceived fatigue based on the questionnaires. From memory tests 1 and 2, a significant number of participants has a drop in performance, either marginally or by a huge amount when memorising words for 1 minute. There seems to be some significance with p<0.005 and negative correlations between percentage duration out of the box and performance as well as percentage count eye out of the box and performance, with r=-0.332 and r=-0.4026 respectively. Though a low correlation, it still suggests that blinking and zero fixation has some negative influence in remote learning. Since fatigue is related to blinks and zero fixation, more signs of them indicate that fatigue therefore resulted in less attention and less memory processing in the short term memory resulting in information getting lost quickly.
