Smah <p>A critical analysis of digital learning ecosystems in ODL universities reveals increasing adoption and innovation of technologies in the process of delivering education across the world. Though proponents of traditional-based education argue that students experiencing learning through ODL systems are disengaged from the learning process and that teachers are equally disconnected from the learning process, with insufficient value placed on face-face teaching, pressures to assign overinflated grades, and incentives to teach content only, and not critical thinking skills, however, technology has the potential to alleviate many of the challenges. Moreover, some of the challenges are peculiar to some of the ODL education systems, especially universities in the developing world. Emerging digital resources and technologies hold promise to enrich and revitalize ODL university systems, give students a deserved learning experience, and better prepare students and teachers to face the 21st century. Every aspect of learning, such as grading, assessment, access to reading materials, learning platforms and environments/classrooms, simulations, etc. is covered by emerging connected workplace technologies. The paper discusses the underlining determinant factors, namely institutional-management preparedness, employee attitudes, institutional research and technological innovations, stakeholder engagement, power supply, bandwidth/broadband issues, funding, digital policy frameworks, and the overall responsiveness to change that global ODL competitiveness imposes. It concludes that institutional preparedness and national priorities drive the effective direction of the change that meets the requirements of ODL learning systems.</p> 2023-03-30T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Sam O. Smah UNIVERSITAS INDONESIA SYSTEM SUPPORT IN ACCELERATING LECTURERS TO IMPLEMENT ODEL FACILITIES 2023-03-09T15:46:09+07:00 T. Ahmad Danial Irma Septuriany Dewanti Dimas Septian Saputra <p>Directorate of Academic Advancement and Learning Resources Universitas Indonesia (DPASDP UI) established in 2020 and one of sub-directorate "Learning Resources" main role is to support learning activities in UI by managing learning facilities such as learning management system (EMAS), computer laboratory, video conference room, and production house. The covid-19 pandemic forced all learning to be held at a distance and fully online, which was only 20% of courses using LMS before the pandemic. Thousands of classes need to be opened in EMAS, so non-eLearning teachers face confusing situations. Several support-system efforts have been opened and revitalized, such as providing migrate-to-online learning guidelines, organizing more teacher training, upgrading the LMS, and establishing a fully online helpdesk. Moreover, the UI strategic plan year 2022 revision has mandated UI to be more implementing technology and increase the number of MOOCs opened, so more facilities development is certainly needed. This paper elaborates on UI strategies and lesson-learned in facing the situations and some effort to keep relevant.</p> 2023-04-28T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 T. Ahmad Danial, Irma Septuriany Dewanti, Dimas Septian Saputra DEVELOPING YOUTUBE VIDEO-BASED LEARNING MATERIAL FOR TOURISM STUDY PROGRAM AT GUNADARMA UNIVERSITY 2023-07-17T08:39:30+07:00 Salsabila Widyo Nugroho Ichwan Suyudi <p>YouTube as one of the most popular inventions on the internet, could be used as a teaching and learning medium, such as studying English for specific purposes, in this example for the tourism study program. The study aimed to create video-based English teaching material for Gunadarma University's tourism students, as well as to collect feedbacks from students. The study employed a mixed-method approach and the R&amp;D method developed by Borg and Gall in this study for creating a teaching and learning video. This study developed English teaching materials in video format that were uploaded on YouTube. The video learning material was reviewed by media and content experts, as well as 30 tourism students in academic year 2020/2021. The result has shown for display quality by experts was 86,00 % satisfactorily, media quality was 81,33% and for lesson quality was 85,45% respectively. Meanwhile the result from students showed for display quality was 86,25% and for material presentation was 92,88%. Among display quality and content presentation in students’ survey, the highest percentage score was content presentation which received 92,88% satisfactorily. In conclusion, the video learning material was considered interesting and helpful for learning English for tourism students.</p> 2023-05-02T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Salsabila, Widyo Nugroho, Ichwan Suyudi LACK OF ACCESS RIGHTS TO HIGHER EDUCATION FOR INDONESIA MIGRANT WORKERS: LESSON LEARNT FROM UNIVERSITAS TERBUKA 2023-07-20T15:58:23+07:00 Nadia Nurani Isfarin Megafury Apriandhini Madiha Dzakiyyah Chairunnisa <p>As part of social rights, the fulfillment and the protection of the right to higher education is guaranteed through positive state action. The State is responsible for developing and maintaining an education system and educational institutions for everyone without discrimination. The State ensures the fulfillment of the right of education, including higher education, which must respond to students' needs different social and cultural conditions. Migrant workers are one of the groups with special needs for higher education. The lack of availability and accessibility (distance and time) of higher education in the destination country leads to the neglect of the migrant workers' more elevated education rights. Migrant workers have equal rights with other Indonesian citizens to get the right to non-discrimination education. This study addresses the protection of the right to higher education for Indonesian migrant workers in Hong Kong. Through a normative juridical approach, this research discusses the right to higher education, the guarantee of the right to higher education for migrant workers in international treaties, and the effort of Universitas Terbuka to fulfill requests to higher education&nbsp; for Indonesian Migrant Worker the higher education through distance learning for Indonesia migrant workers who are Universitas Terbuka's students in Hong Kong.</p> 2023-05-11T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Nadia Nurani Isfarin, Megafury Apriandhini, Madiha Dzakiyyah Chairunnisa IDEA TESTING AND ANALOGY PREDICT CREATIVITY OF BIOLOGY STUDENTS IN ONLINE LEARNING 2023-03-10T11:00:12+07:00 Diki Dem Vi Sara Eko Yuliastuti Endah Sulistyawati Mutimanda Dwisatyadini Ida Malati Sadjati Endang Indrawati <p>Identifying factors affecting students’ success is important. This is a study on creativity of biology students to solve their learning problem. The participants are biology students at Universitas Terbuka (UT), the only single mode distance learning university in Indonesia.&nbsp; conducting online tutorial in introductory biology. Descriptive and bivariate correlation statistics data are collected, including one dependent variable about improvement of problem-solving skill and six independent variables. The six independent variables are problem identification, information searching, idea generation, analogy, integrating different concepts, and idea testing. Demographic data are age, gender, and length of daily online activities. There are 73 students returned the survey with 23.4% response rate. Most students (more than 60%) agree to some extent in all the variables. There are different levels of agreement about the use of online tutorial regarding gender, age and length of daily online activities. There are only two out of six independent variables that have significant correlation (0.05 significance level, two-tailed) with improvement of problem-solving skill, which are analogy and idea testing.</p> <p>Keywords: creativity, biology, problem-solving, distance learning, online learning</p> 2023-05-12T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Diki, Dem Vi Sara, Eko Yuliastuti Endah Sulistyawati, Mutimanda Dwisatyadini
