Abstract

While there are many other tools available, zoom cloud meeting is one of the most used because of its ability to facilitate group learning and communication in the same way as face-to-face meetings. This research is expected to explain the challenges and benefits of using zoom as an alternative to traditional distance learning in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic in universities. This study aims to determine students’ responses to online learning based on Zoom application in teaching English for Indonesian language education study programs. The type of research used in this study is a mixed method. The data is obtained directly from respondents, which includes students’ responses to online learning based on the Zoom application. The sources of data are in the form of questionnaires, interviews, and learning outcomes. The instruments in this study used a questionnaire and an interview. Data collection techniques used non-test data collection techniques, namely interview questionnaires and learning outcomes. The data is analyzed with
qualitative and quantitative techniques. The interview results show that the Zoom application is suitable for use in online learning because it is easy to access. Constraints experienced when using the Zoom application are internet networks that are not good and wasteful of quota. The learning  outcomes of students of the Indonesian language education study program in the subject of English are 85.79 in the good category.
