This study used a qualitative approach to examine the phenomena that occur in the field. Data were collected through questionnaires, observations, documents, and interviews. The data analysis technique used data reduction, data presentation and concluding. The results of the study concluded that students showed a positive attitude towards the use of video assignments for the Literature class, students have a high and stable level of concentration, and students can improve communication skills because the learning process can be done out of online class. It gave implications for the understanding of teaching staff about the appropriate technology media used for each course that is by the student's background and learning environment
