This article illustrates the implementation of online learning in the time of Covid-19 outbreak in Indonesian context through teachers’ empirical experiences. Drawing from the survey from 128 teachers as respondents of the research across the country the research concludes that most of the teachers who conduct online learning reveal some difficulties and challenges. There are some internal barriers, i.e. teachers’ incompetent to implement such technological devices, too many online classes and administrative tasks, un-conducive situation at home. On the other hand, the external barriers i.e. unstable internet connection, student less motivation to learn, and less support from the parents. Looking at the learning processes, many teachers prefer to use the most popular platform to maintain their classes, i.e. Google class, Edmodo, Microsoft Office 365, and Zoom meeting. Furthermore, WhatsApp became the primary choice of social media to support the main LMS. The research also found some teachers’ learning media preferences indicator to choose the platform, i.e. its user friendly, simplicity, accessibility, and owned by all students. Accordingly, this research has huge potential contribution to the field of educational technology, especially on how this field of studies cope with the crisis in education in this pandemic time.
