Abstract

This study aims to determine the effectiveness of students of vocational high school (SMKN) 2 Bengkulu Utara (North Bengkulu) in the middle of the COVID-19 outbreak using online media. This research is a descriptive quantitative study that focuses on evaluating learning using online media. The study population was all students of SMKN 2 Bengkulu Utara who were taught during the COVID-19 outbreak by using online methods. The research sample was students of class XI who were selected using a simple random sampling technique by considering population homogeneity. The data collection instrument used an online learning questionnaire. Data analysis used was descriptive statistics. The results showed that students used online media very effectively (25.3%), most of them rated it as effective (42.7%), and rated it as normal (17%). Although there are also students who think online learning is ineffective (15%), and absolutely none (0%) think it is very ineffective. Finally, to improve the quality of online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, educators must fulfill ten suggestions from respondents, namely: (1) learning is done through video calls; (2) providing brief learning materials; (3) minimize sending material in the form of heavy videos to save quota; (4) the selection of material in the video must be based on language criteria that are easy to understand; (5) continue to provide material prior to the assignment; (6) giving varied and different questions for each student; (7) assignment must include the way it works; (8) assign assignments according to the lesson schedule; (9) remind students if there is a task given; and (10) reducing the number of tasks.
