E-Learning On History Learning: Aspect of Material, Teacher, Learning Environment and Students

Jamiludin Jamiludin, Darnawati Darnawati


This research was conducted to know the student’s perception of e-learning in studying history in terms of material, teachers, learning environment, the students themselves, and the teacher's perception of e-learning in teaching history. The researchers used a mixed-method design. Instruments of this research were questionnaires and    Interview. The subjects were 25 history teachers and 161 students of senior high school in Kendari city, Indonesia. The result found that students prefer to study face-to-face. They prefer that the material is taught directly by the teacher in class. Class conditions are comfortable, and they can interact with teachers and friends. Students do not feel bored doing assignments from teachers during a pandemic. They like to summarize history assignments rather than memorizing the material. Most students complain about the conditions of studying from home. Network problems and not having facilities such as laptops and smartphones are the main problems for online learning. History teachers assume that in implementing e-learning, they prefer asynchronous e-learning. History teachers mostly use e-learning applications such as Google Classroom, WhatsApp, and YouTube.
