For more than a year, Covid-19 has degraded human living habits in almost all areas of life, whether in the economic, social, entertainment, psychology, and education fields, which has forced humans to try to protect themselves from the dangers of viruses and the dangers of losing their human status as a human being. social beings, while maintaining health rules without compromising the essence of social beings.
Focusing on the field of education, the world of learning has almost lost the value of the learning process in general. In the absence of direct interaction between learning partners and education staff, it can be said that education has lost half of the essence of learning.
All elements of education are in a dilemma with the confusion of the learning system, where a teacher or in the context of lectures is a lecturer who must continue to convey his knowledge in its entirety to his students through the media which has many obstacles. Yes, online classes are an alternative method of delivering material that can be applied during the current pandemic with many potential ethical violations when online classes take place. For example, "yes online, yes lay down", this is very potential when students do not turn on the camera during online classes.
There is also "leaking" of voices that can disturb the lecturer when delivering the material. Departing from the small number of cases, it seems very important for learning partners in general, or students in particular to pay attention to ethics when taking online classes.
First, join the room on time. Ideally, ten or five minutes before the online class schedule starts, students should be prepared to open the link room by the "lecturer in the course WhatsApp group". So that when (badly) there are obstacles when joining the class, students still have time to optimize the performance of the join room. This is also in order to "guard the hearts of our teachers". How does it really hurt, when our lecturers enter the class and not a single student is ready to be given knowledge. Even though the lecturers have spared their busy lives just to "serve" the desires of students who are thirsty for knowledge. The note is, don't be afraid to be the first person to enter the class, just because you are afraid to be the object of the lecturer's question.
Second, be polite when on camera. I don't mean to justify turning off the camera during online classes, because not every student's internet network is good. However, it should be underlined that turning on the camera during online classes is a student's pride in the current pandemic. The next thing that needs to be underlined is the screen display that shows you, wearing clothes like offline classes is important. Yes, wearing a collared shirt, neat hair can be your big motivation to study. Next, take care of shooting cameras around you, lest there be "leaked" images that don't need to be entered into the shoot camera. you can use the custom background feature or just make sure there won't be anyone passing by in front of the camera. Third, be wise in mute-unmute. Always monitor the microphone icon in the join room application feature, whether it is crossed out or not. This is important so that the lecturers can deliver the material in full without any noise in the middle of the delivery. Students only need to activate the microphone when answering or asking the lecturers, apart from that, unmuting is a must. One more thing, use (at least) a microphone headset so that the sound focuses on students only. Fourth, keep attention to the material. No matter how heavy, as much as possible, as strong as possible, keep an eye on the material given by the teacher. Maybe, it could be by opening the material that some teachers provide at the e-learning spot, so that when the teacher starts explaining the material, students only need to confirm the knowledge they have. With the four ethics above, it seems that it is enough to make students feel the adrenaline of lectures that triggers the speed of thinking of the brain as well as offline lectures. Hopefully, by maintaining etiquette in online lectures, the knowledge we seek will be more blessed, beneficial, and valuable.
