Abstract

The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted the conventional learning process. So a solution is needed to answer these problems. Online learning is an alternative that can solve this problem. The research objective was to obtain an overview of the implementation of online learning in the Gorontalo State University Basic Education Study Program as an effort to suppress the spread of covid-19 in tertiary institutions. The research subjects were students of the Basic Education Study Program. Data were collected by interview via zoom cloud meeting. Data analysis was performed using the interactive analysis technique of Miles & Huberman. The results showed that: (1) students already have the basic facilities needed to take part in online learning; (2) online learning has flexibility in its implementation and is able to encourage independent learning and motivation to be more active in learning; and (3) distance learning encourages the emergence of social distancing behavior and minimizes the appearance of student crowds so that it is considered to reduce the potential for the spread of Covid-19 in tertiary institutions. Weak supervision of students, lack of strong signals in remote areas, and high quota fees are challenges in online learning. Increasing independent learning, interest and motivation, courage to present ideas and questions are other advantages of online learning
