Abstract

The 4.0 industrial era education is required to organize virtual learning. One determinant of learning success is soft skills, but only a few research studies examine the urgency of soft skills in virtual learning. This study aims to examine the urgency of the soft skills students need in virtual learning and determine what aspects of soft skills students need to have in virtual learning. This research was carried out using the literature study method. The steps were to determine the topic, collect library materials based on the topic, analyze library materials, and provide conclusions. The results of the study showed that soft skills are needed for students when carrying out virtual learning. The aspects of soft skills that students need to have in this 4.0 industrial era are (1) collaboration; (2) digital literacy; (3) communication; (4) creativity; (5) independent learning; (6) cognitive development; and (7) critical thinking skills.
