However, not all PAUD units are able to carry out internet-based learning which is called e-learning. This study aims to provide assistance in implementing a fun E-Learning for PAUD teachers in Argasunya Village, Cirebon City. This study uses a qualitative method. The community service steps taken are through webinars, question and answer and discussion.

Introduction

Online learning is called internet-based technology, the web is used to introduce learning materials (Arsyad, 2011). E-learning requires a computer in the delivery of learning that uses a central guide with a distance that can be inserted with text, graphics, animation, audio and video simulations (Abdullah, 2020). Information has a positive impact on educational development, including formal, non-formal and informal education (Triyono, 2019). Educational units can take advantage of technological facilities from simple to complex, such as computers and the internet (Aditiya, 2020). E learning is basically an innovation in conventional forms of learning such as a digital format that can be developed from simple, personal, fast and entertaining elements that can make students feel like they are in the classroom at when learning from home (Silahuddin, 2015).


Educational institutions compete to cope with developments in information and communication technology for schools / madrasahs from high school to high levels. Implementation of e-learning under various names, including online learning, online learning systems, virtual learning, or ICT-based learning systems. The application of the e-learning system requires teachers and lecturers who are proficient in the application of (Siahaan, Murniarti, & Simbolon, 2021) information and communication technology.

Learning activities through the internet and websites can be used freely as open source products, an open source based e learning system can improve the efficiency and performance of teachers on innovative teaching materials such as digital-based student worksheets (Suyanto, 2005). In other words, education has evolved various elements, namely planning, strategy, processes, media and resources (Abdullah, 2019). The conventional face-to-face learning process becomes e learning which requires professionalism from educators, good communication with parents of students and the readiness of gadget device facilities equipped with the internet (Rahmawati & Yulianti, 2020).

Teachers are made easy because using these features is easy and student-friendly. Teachers can make learning innovations and teaching materials that are better understood by students without having to come to schools (Sahlani, Sopiansyah, & Agung, 2020). The use of learning technology uses internet-based learning in its processes using web applications, google class, edmodo, and whtasapp. These applications are very easy to access and useful in online learning, although there are still obstacles in learning, namely teachers who have not mastered learning technology, students who do not have gadgets, learning processes that are difficult to monitor properly and assignment collection is often not on time (Almah, Thohari, & Lismanda, 2020).

In distance learning using WhatsApp groups to give assignments to children, the assignments given are in the form of voice recordings, videos, pictures. The child collects assignments to the teacher using voice recordings, videos, pictures, etc. The teacher gives value as feedback. Giving assignments based on scientific literacy on the topic of the 2019 coronavirus disease (Covid 19). In elementary school children there are still many children who do not understand more complete information about Covid 19, based on the explanatory text presented by students, it is difficult to conclude which parts of the body are generally targeted by the Covid 19 (Setiawan & Mufassaroh, 2020) attack.

From the results of the above research, it is known that the applications that are chosen as e-learning media are WhatsApp, Google Class, Web, Videocall, Zoom and Edmodo. The use of this application is based on the reason that it is easy and friendly to both teachers and students. Teaching materials can be clearly


conveyed and modified to be more innovative, fun through the insertion of images, photos, videos and sounds.(Nurkolis & Muhdi, 2020)

All levels of society are not immune from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, both parents, teachers and the learning process, on parents, it has an impact on the hassle of guiding children in children's learning at home, especially if you have more than one child, the additional cost for purchasing quotas is felt. when e learning is carried out. The impact felt by the teacher was on teaching activities carried out from home by preparing teaching materials every day through gadgets and the internet. The impact on the implementation of learning is the conventional change into e learning (Suryaman et al., 2020).

The challenges experienced in the e learning process are numerous, seen from the point of view of educators, education staff and parents of students. Areas that are difficult to get a stable and adequate internet network, the unpreparedness of the teaching staff in implementing the e learning curriculum so that learning is not achieved properly (Al Qolbi, 2019). Therefore, the learning that is carried out does not emphasize the achievement of learning but by providing meaningful learning for living in pandemic period. (RI, Lt, & Subroto, 2020)

Another problem faced in learning in learning is the lack of teacher response to overcome protests from parents who regret that during this pandemic, learning is only given with a lot of assignments. Teachers realize that they are not ready for the e learning process, so they need cooperation with colleagues, guardians, students and are supported by technology and internet facilities so that the teacher is able to choose a fun learning strategy (Suyanto, 2005).

Technological developments require the education sector to continue to improve the quality of the use of information technology in learning. (Sampurno, Maulidiyah, & Puspitaningrum, 2015) Computer technology-based learning media such as Moodle is a medium that is applied as needed. Moodle is a web-based, object-oriented dynamic learning model. The Moodle application can help students gain more knowledge through the form of uploading optical learning materials through the Moodle function, innovative worksheets that improve the abilities of (Setiawan & Mufassaroh, 2020) students.

Parenting learning or parenting learning must be pursued because of the impact that occurs. Parents must be able to understand children's thinking and learning styles as a provision for mentoring children during e-learning (Lailasari, 2019). Nowadays sophisticated technology can provide unlimited access and obtain all kinds of educational information. Parents have the opportunity to study independently and find out as much information as possible about parenting materials. This convenient method needs to be used to explore the learning experience as easily as possible to do nurture and nurture for children (Saepudin & Ulfah, 2015). One of the complexities of using e learning is through webinars


which aim to provide facilities for parents to study independently anywhere, anytime and anywhere. The continuous learning process will have a significant impact on learning outcomes and achieving learning goals.

Obstacles faced by PAUD teachers in Argasunya Village in the e-learning process are unpreparedness in applying gadgets, google classroom, google meet, zoom meet (Sukirwan, 2020). Teachers are not yet proficient in operating devices such as computers and props, and not all PAUD have computer equipment, teachers still limited in the manufacture of computer-based teaching materials and their implementation. Efforts to educate PAUD teachers in improving the competence of implementing e learning through webinars with the theme of implementing e lerning during a pandemic are acts of community service in implementing the tridharma of higher education (Sukirwan, 2020).
