The Role of Teachers in Online Learning during the Covid-19 Pandemic
During the Covid-19 pandemic, schools and teachers implemented government policies, namely learning from home. The role of teachers as educators must be able to adapt to the digital world so that learning can continue even in a pandemic. The purpose of the study was to determine the role of teachers in online learning during the Covid-19 pandemic. This research is a literature study. The subject of the study consists of literature sources in the form of published journals taken from 2010 to 2020. The data needed in the research can be obtained from library sources or documents. The data that has been obtained will be analyzed so that conclusions can be drawn using the analysis of the Miles and Huberman model. The results of the study suggest that learning success is still determined by the role of the teacher, while technology is only present as a complement in the learning process. Online learning cannot be separated from obstacles, both in terms of human resources and facilities and infrastructure. Network limitations, lack of training were stated as the main challenges faced. Some areas in Indonesia online learning is not running optimally, especially in remote areas with limited technology and networks. The readiness of school infrastructure, the ability of teachers to teach, and the availability of facilities are other problems in the implementation of online learning in Indonesia.
