Home-based learning applications, online learning, Coronavirus (COVID-19), Islamic higher education.



This research seeks to explain the most liked and disliked home-based learning applications by students and lecturers in Islamic higher education institutions during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in Indonesia. The study was conducted at one of the Islamic higher education in Indonesia, Institut Agama Islam Darussalam (IAID) Ciamis, West Java, Indonesia. The study used a survey method involving 55 samples of lecturers and 145 samples of students. Data were collected using a Google Form questionnaire. Research findings indicate that the prevalence of lecturers and students on online learning applications, including their perceptions about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of those applications, is driven by personal interests and motives, financial aspects, and like or dislike factors. An application is called useful to achieve learning objectives, according to them, not based on objective and factual considerations, but because of personal concerns.
