Abstract

The impact of the Covid19 pandemic on education is forcing lectures to be carried out online. The purpose of this article is to explain the problems and challenges of online lectures in Indonesia at the beginning of the Covid19 pandemic. Sources of data in this study were Undergraduate students of Andalas University in the Pragmatic class. Data obtained through observation and interviews. The analysis was carried out in a qualitative manner. Based on the research, it was concluded that the problems faced by students in taking online lectures were problems with the internet, electricity, online devices, environment, personal problems, and unattractive learning. These problems are challenges for lecturers and the government. For lecturers, lecturers must improve their ability to use online learning applications. The challenge for the Indonesian government is to even out development that supports online lectures, such as electricity supply that reaches all corners of the country, internet networks that are available in all corners of the country at the same speed anywhere, the government needs to make a policy regarding subsidizing online learning tools such as smartphones, laptops, or computers for the middle to lower economic community. Thus, online lectures will be able to run smoothly while improving the student mindset regarding the right course.
