The Covid-19 pandemic has driven many universities in Indonesia to conduct online learning. However, the implementation of online learning has encountered many obstacles, one of which is the uneven network quality and the low purchasing power of students for internet packages. This has an impact on decreasing the effectiveness of online student learning to take lectures online. The purpose of this research is to develop podcasts as teaching materials for university students in online learning. The media used for the publication of teaching materials is Google Podcasts on the link https://bit.ly/3fGC3IU. The podcast’s theme is writing thesis and scientific articles. The method used in this research is Research and Development (R&D). Respondents in this study were 124 students from five universities in Indonesia. The results of this study indicate that podcasts can reduce obstacles in online learning. The main advantage felt by respondents was the ease of access to teaching materials even though the quality of the internet network was inadequate. Besides, students do not spend a lot of money to buy internet packages because the podcast file size is relatively small. Based on this research, the recommendation put forward is that the development of online teaching materials should pay attention to the economic conditions of students so that learning objectives can be achieved properly.
