"Hopefully with the online learning, our colleges are getting better quality." Online learning, he added, is inevitable in the era of Industrial Revolution 4.0. Menristekdikti gives examples of teacher room applications, which currently have seven million users.
"So in the future, colleges whose numbers currently number 4,579 universities, are no longer using the current ratio." In addition, Nasir said, the lecturer requirement for each study program is no longer a six lecturers' study program. Later that number can be changed for example six lecturers for the faculty level and so forth.

"Menristekdikti has flexed the regulation for the opening of new courses, but in fact to open new courses must be in accordance with the nomenclature and there are requirements of six lecturers for one study program, it is quite heavy for college," Arif. (Ant)
