Since then our habits have changed a lot. Starting from the way we interact, worship and study.
Since Covid-19 began to spread in Indonesia, we have to stay at home. One of the causes of the spread of the virus is due to the crowd. for that, the government has implemented several regulations to reduce the crowd. For example in schools, it is certain that there are crowds of students and teachers in schools. To prevent the increase in the covid-19 cluster in schools, the government has implemented a distance learning program or better known as online learning.

For example, teachers cannot monitor all their students more freely so that there are many cases of students who fall asleep while studying online but are not reprimanded or even play games during teaching and learning activities.
The cases mentioned above would not have happened if students knew ethics when studying online. The following are ethics that students should know before starting online learning. The ethics below aim to make online learning more conducive and students can understand lessons better.
Students should obey what the teacher instructs about online learning, such as commands to turn off or turn on cameras and microphones. Turning off the camera when the teacher is talking is often considered impolite. If students do not have a webcam, they should inform the teacher via the chat column.
Doing assignments or quizzes online is very different from doing it face-to-face. Students can work together without the teacher knowing. Cheating will be easier too. For this reason, students should be honest in doing assignments or quizzes given by the teacher. To avoid cheating during online exams, the school can apply online proctoring during the exam.
