The COVID-19 pandemic has affected many sectors including education, either secondary, primary, and higher education institutions (HEIs). Lecturers and learners faced many challenges to interact effectively since there is a new transition in teaching mode from physical class (F2F) to online learning. In other words, online learning becomes more difficult, particularly during the earlier year of the pandemic for both parties due to various reasons. One of the major reasons is the lack of learners' engagement in the classroom, which has caused learners' emotions and motivation to learn to drop significantly. In realizing that enhancing learners’ performance has become an important element for academic success, This paper tries to explore various influential factors related to learners’ engagement in the classroom. The data is collected using a quantitative method through the distribution of a questionnaire to QS degree students. Using factor analysis, it was found that the major contributor that might influence learner engagement was the learner factor, followed by the lecturer factor, educational or institutional factor, and other related factors. Looking into this situation, much effort is highly needed from lecturers and faculty to enhance their engagement in their academic performance.
