Community College Student, Teaching and Learning, Online Implementation, Movement Control Order (MCO), Challenges


The implementation of teaching and learning (PdP) online during the Movement Control Order (MCO) has brought a great transformation in the direction of national education. This action by closing the education sector caused all higher education centers to be closed to break the chain of transmission of this dangerous epidemic. As a result, the face-to-face teaching and learning process that has been practiced since ancient times had to be stopped during the Movement Control Order (MCO) period. For students, online learning seems to make it easier for them to go through lectures by only being at home. However, from a different angle, there are some challenges that students have to face. This study aims to explore the challenges of community college’s students towards the implementation of online teaching and learning methods. This study uses a qualitative method. A total of ten students were selected as informants by using purposive sampling. A virtual in- depth interview method was used as a data collection technique. By using the thematic method of inductive analysis to analyze the data, the study found that the challenges faced by community college’s students in the online learning process are access to internet facilities, low levels of learning effectiveness, and an atmosphere that is not conducive to learning. Therefore, it is hoped that this study will benefit all parties, especially the Ministries, Departments, and Community College institutions to construct a policy or contingency plans to deal with this issue to ease the burden on students who are still in the process of adapting to this new matter.
