This incident is increasingly widespread in Wuhan society many victims have fallen . This virus is extraordinary ,only in the last 3 months,this virus has claimed thousands of lives,even now it’s not only in China that has the highest level of outbreaks but has overtaken other countries such as Italy,Iran,and South Korea,and followed oyher countries , such as Indonesia,Britain,Japan,the United States,Germany,and other countries .
In Indonesia,the government issued and provided several policies regarding yhe COVID-19 outbreak. One of them is prohibition of people gathering and doing activities outside the home , and advocating to stay at home “Stay at home,worship at through physical contact .
One of the governments instruction about activities at home is learning acivities. Teaching and learning activities are moved at home , but must still be controlled by the teacher or a lecturer and parents,using distance learning ( online learning ) .

Some of our society say that learning process by online learning , the students will get another knowledge that they never get or even think before.
Unfortunately, students and parents, especially those who are in elementary schools, are not satisfied with the learning process. There are some reasons that make it happens.
