Abstract

The Covid-19 Pandemic occurring from the end of 2019 until mid-2022, shifted various ways of life. The government issued a number of policies to prevent the spread of the virus, like physical distancing. The rule was also implemented in the educational sector, which regulated the implementation of online learning. Unfortunately, many societies complained about the rule; thus a scientific approach was necessary to carry out. This study aims to: 1) identify the online learning media used by English teachers at a school in West Papua, 2) find out the problems faced by English teachers in the online learning process during Covid-19 at a school in West Papua, and 3) to find out how they deal with problems in teaching English Online during the Covid-19 pandemic. It is descriptive qualitative research collecting data using a triangulation approach consisting of interviews, observation, and documentation. Data were analysed using an interactive approach through some stages, including data reduction, presentation, and conclusion/verification. The results showed that the media used by the teacher were WhatsApp and Google Classroom because they were considered practical and efficient. Problems related to internet connection and students’ motivation to learn became two main concerns during the implementation of online learning. Therefore, teachers extended the time for submitting assignments, and if students were unable to access the internet, they were instructed to go to school to submit them. Students with low motivation were contacted by teachers personally or by contacting their friends. Boredom emerging in the learning process was tackled by distributing tasks.
