Abstract

Distance learning has been becoming the new learning systems for the universities which always deal with offline class during the coronavirus outbreak. In this paper, the researchers aimed to analyze the disadvantages in distance learning. This study examined the distant experiences through the Indonesian college students’ points of view. The researchers used a qualitative research method. The research data were collected online through social media platforms i.e., Twitter and WhatsApp. They were in the forms of interviews in questionnaires related to students’ experiences engaging in distance learning. The subjects were 55 college students from various universities in Indonesia. The results were (1) the disadvantages of distance learning wee various, (2) the obstacles that most experienced by the students were poor internet connection, and lack of internet data, and (3) the obstacles which they experienced led to the distance knowledge which really affected their learning processes. These conditions implicitly say that traditional classroom students have not been ready for the distance learning which brings them to distance knowledge and learning lost.
