The Covid-19 pandemic that occurred worldwide caused a social policy for all citizens to break this Covid-19 chain. However, this policy impacts all aspects of life, including the field of education in Indonesia. The government decided to move the learning process from face-to-face learning to online learning from home, called distance learning. This study aims to put forward the Schoology and Slido platform as a perfect combination for teachers during distance learning in the Covid-19 pandemic, compared to platforms that have been used by teachers in general. This study used a descriptive qualitative to 120 teachers from various levels of education in Indonesia. The results show that the most widely used platform is Google Classroom (44.17%), in which 37 people said Google Classroom was effective, and 16 people said it was not. The second most used platform is WhatsApp Group (31.67%), in which eight people said WhatsApp Group was effective, and 30 people said it was not. This result brings up the teacher training in how to use Schoology and Slido as a perfect platform combination for distance learning during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Schoology is an application that consists of full features needed in the learning process. At the same time, Slido is a question and answer platform also polling platform that will make fun interaction in learning.
