The Effectiveness of Distance Learning Using Social Media during the Pandemic Period of COVID-19: A Case in Universitas Kristen Indonesia
Pandemic covid-19 has made the learning system on campus forced to change drastically from face-to-face meetings to distance learning online. Many campuses that do not yet have online learning infrastructure are forced to conduct online lectures amid the existing limitations. This study aims to analyze the effectiveness of distance learning using social media during the Covid-19 Pandemic. This study used a survey method using a questionnaire conducted online to 250 students who were then analyzed using the Multi-Attribute Utility Theory (MAUT). Indonesian Christian University supports the policy of learning from home by imposing online learning using social media such as Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube to provide lecture material and assignments to students. The results of testing the effectiveness of distance learning using social media concluded that distance learning using social media is only effective for theoretical and theoretical practical courses, whereas in practice courses and distance field courses using social media is felt to be less effective.
