Abstract

The Coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) epidemic is increasingly spreading throughout the world and has been declared a pandemic by world organizations. This compels educational institutions to issue a lockdown policy on-campus activities by emphasizing at online learning (virtual learning) process. This study aims to identify the perception of civil engineering students towards the effectiveness of virtual learning implementation during the Covid-19 pandemic. This is descriptive research involves a questionnaire with a Likert scale technique. The questionnaire was developed by google form application and distributed by email. The subject was 50 civil engineering students who enrolled in basic engineering and structure courses. The results showed that the implementation of virtual learning was not quite effective based on civil engineering student’s perception. Despite the students were quite an enthusiasm due to its technical challenge and time flexibility, there are some major problems in virtual learning implementation which are required to be addressed first. These problems are the level of understanding, the social interaction during virtual learning, the internet cost, and internet access and facilities. Therefore, the role of institutions is required so that the virtual learning implementation during the Covid-19 pandemic can be applied as expected.
