BANDUNG, unpas.ac.id – The plans of offline learning preparation are kindly welcomed by few students. The plans are according the circular letter from Minister of Education and Culture.
For almost more than a year, students all over Indonesia have been struggling with online learning because of Covid-19 pandemic prohibition notice. No doubt, many of them are expecting this plan to be true next July.
Except for missing the atmosphere of studying in the class, students also want all laboratory practices and other activities to be held as before, as stated by one of the students from Department of Food Engineering Universitas Pasundan, Safna Annisa Rahmani.
She said that by offline learning, the postponed campus activities, such as laboratory practice, would be much effective.
“Alhamdulillah, I feel glad by the plan. The class would be much interactive and discussion would be much fun. Laboratory practice, that I have never imagined how and what it is, would be much understandable,” she said, on Tuesday (April 20th, 2021)
Although she thought that online learning was quite fun and challenging, she must admit that she often found problems on the device and connection. However, she becomes more active to look for another source of book and studying for herself.
Other than Safna, another student from Department of Management Faculty of Economics and Business, Dearyl Marcnesyah also expected that PTM would come true as soon as possible. Therefore, the presentation and teaching material given in the class would be quickly understood.
“An offline learning makes the material way easier to understand. Then, the offline learning makes it possible for student to get along with each other as usual, especially for new students, to make them know their friends,” she said.
One of the positive sides of online learning that Dearyl feels is that it triggers his motivation and enthusiasm to browse sources from the internet and journals. Similar to Safna, during online learning, she herself also found some troubles on the network and way to use the learning platform. Therefore, they really expect the offline learning could come true in next July. This is surely able to be implemented by doing strict health protocol and setting regulation as detailed as possible to be obeyed by all campus elements.
“The offline learning would probably still be in the midst of Covid-19 pandemic, so we need to keep on in the strict health protocol. Insya Allah, we are ready to obey them, whatever the rules or regulations are,” he ended. (Reta Amaliyah S)*
