Most university lecturers in Indonesia, especially in West Nusa Tenggara, are still grappling with the challenge of facilitating learning for their students at home. Many of them are forced to distribute weekly paper-based assignments to parents. On April 10, 2020, the Ministry of Education and Culture of Republik Indonesia (Kemdikbud-RI) used national television (TVRI) to deliver learning packages. This effort needs to be developed further, because there are still concerns about the availability of all learning materials throughout the university curriculum. Moreover, some remote areas in Indonesia do not even have access to electricity. Overall, the disruption of the pandemic has explained a widening digital divide that has serious implications for human resource development in Indonesia. This study aims to investigate: (1) To what extent are lecturers involved in online learning during the Covid-19 pandemic? (2) What challenges do lecturers face when involved in online learning during the Covid-19 crisis? This research was categorized as a qualitative research method. The gathered data analyzed by using triangulation techniques to pursue the data validity.
