Covid-19 has resulted in social activities limitation by the Indonesia government, one of which is related to teaching and learning activities in the university. The Sociology Department of the University of Indonesia took steps by replacing usual lectures to online lectures or E-learning. Unlike usual lectures, E-learning suddenly challenges students to change their study habits. According to that statement, the research question was “how was the adaptation strategy undertaken by the Sociology Department of the University of Indonesia related to the teaching and learning process during the COVID-19 pandemic?” Thus, the aim of research is to apply the adaptation strategies, according to Smith’s (1986) concept regarding an action plan at a certain period of time, group or the whole human being as an effort in steps with inside and outside their capabilities. E-learning concept by Horton (2010) is all forms of information and computer technology in creating learning experiences (formulated, organized, and created through internet devices).This research uses quantitative methods. The results show that lectures with the E-learning system were not effective with a score of 2.84 within a 1-5 scale. The Obstacles show the difficulties in the understanding materials, unstable signals, unsupported devices, and psychological problems. The E-learning barriers strategies commonly taken to overcome the obstacles are to ask colleagues for help, to search for the references using google searching engine, and to get social support from colleagues and families. The University of Indonesia E-learning system has not worked effectively yet. For this reason, contextual solutions are still needed to develop teaching and learning systems in order to remain effective despite the challenges during Covid-19 pandemic.
