Abstract
The recent pandemic COVID-19 has been a tragedy and opportunity at the same time when it affects the international economy, medical field, industrial workforce, and education. Facing directly at this new era by social distancing, in terms of education, online learning has become a discerning strategy to minimize some particular detrimental effects of this epidemic. However, this approach has arisen some deep flaws which can reverse society’s effort including lack of student’s motivation, poor internet connection, mental health issues due to lack of interactions and cheating issues. Among all aforementioned problems where the first three ones play an essential role in determining the students’ overall performance. Livestreaming with prepared rewards and bonuses can push up face-to-face interaction, thus, improving their motivation. Moreover, the connectivity issue can be addressed by increasing free WiFi hotpots in public areas and providing incentives to students. Mental issues due to lack of interaction is addressed by “Community learning centers”which blend online learning with traditional learning. It’s a platform for students to interact with similar group and it’s support students with connectivity and technology issues.  The top priority subject, cheating is most dependent on which subject that student study. For the course that is unrelated to that major, an open-book exam or small project can be used as an alternative for the final score. On the other hand, ‘specially-designed’ websites that could prevent some in-hand functions, limit time for each question, and make webcam-capturing is the optimal answer for the cheating issue.
