Abstract
In the early 2020s, Indonesia was shocked by the Coronavirus Disease (Covid-19) outbreak which struck almost all parts of the world. The Indonesian government spontaneously implemented a policy of learning from home, working from home, and worship at home. All face-to-face activities are diverted online.
