Covid-19 pandemic has made many countries adapt to new situations in different sectors including education. The Indonesia government has decided to adjust the education mode from face-to-face to online meetings using various learning management systems (LMS) such as moodle and google classroom. Moreover, the present research depicted the online learning barriers faced by students as well as their alternatives to cope them. The research implemented a descriptive mixed-method survey design. The participants were 25 students from the English Education Department. The instruments used to gather the data were the questionnaires and interviews regarding the topics. The results showed that students experienced three barriers during online learning including unfamiliarity of e-learning, slow internet connection, and physical condition e.g. eye strain. The alternatives they proposed were providing training to implement the LMS before the real class, converting high-definition or big-size files into smaller ones, and giving break during the online class. The conclusion stated that students had to be creatives to find any solutions and innovations regarding learning barriers including maintaining good communication with teacher and understanding the best learning styles individually.
