Meeting fatigue

Another point that was raised in the discussion is a general online meeting fatigue. Not every physical meeting is a rave — but virtual meetings seem to be even more tiresome. I believe that one of the reasons for this fatigue is that the participants of the meeting do not feel actively involved. Switching off your video camera makes this worse.
