Abstract

the Covid-19 pandemic insists face-to-face learning on campus be switched to online or e-learning. However, radical changes are challenging for both educators and students. Besides, conventional learning and teaching used for decades are more preferable. In addition, the selections of the media used in learning activities and learning design are also significant. This study aims at finding students’ perspectives (preferences) and suggestions about the implementation of online English learning and teaching during the covid-19 pandemic. The participants of the study were 54 Language Department students at the State Polytechnic of Bengkalis. The research was conducted in a descriptive method. Data and information were gathered through a 5-point Likert scale Google form survey adapted from [9]. The questionnaire covered students’ technical condition, students’ technical skills / learning styles, lecturers’ technical skills / teaching styles, student’s ability to assimilate and learn while learning online. The data were analyzed using Statistical analysis application; The Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) to provide descriptive statistics. The study discovered that video conference platforms are the most preferable in online learning, and live video conference and discussion on chat/forums were the most favorable ones. Having video conferences promote better information processing, while information processing is harder in non-conference online platforms. It was also found that the satisfaction level toward online learning is low; face-to-face learning is still the most favorable. In addition, improvement on students’ technical condition, students’ technical skills / learning styles, lecturers’ technical skills / teaching styles are still needed. Therefore, appropriate utilization of video conference and forum discussion is a necessity. Finally, it is recommended to provide both lecturers’ and students’ training programs to promote better online learning and teaching. Moreover, it is also suggested to add frequency (duration) of video conference meeting and simplify assignments given.
