The impact of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia has made many schools and universities decide to eliminate face-to-face teaching and learning activities and replace them with online distance learning methods at home. This is implemented to limit direct physical interaction in order to suppress the spread of the virus so that it does not spread further.
Learning online certainly has its own challenges. Because they are considered more free and flexible, students are actually required to have a commitment to carry out independent learning at home. Online learning has challenges in supervision so that students continue to carry out teaching and learning activities according to face-to-face learning time. In addition, of course, technological devices such as smartphones or laptops as well as a good internet network must be available.
