Transmission of corona diseases or often called COVID-19 which is so widespread in almost all the world makes COVID-19 a pandemic. These conditions change the social order that was originally normal to not run as usual. Almost all social activities are carried out by keeping a distance between people called social distancing or physical distancing. Learning activities ranging from elementary to higher education are affected by the spread of COVID-19. At present all learning is performed through online media. Online learning certainly has its own characteristics that must be understood by both students and educators. Online learning is in line with developments in information technology. The lack of educator and student competencies in the development and use of online learning is a problem in implementing learning from home. One learning model that can be utilized in physical distancing policy is Web-Based Learning (WBL). WBL is a learning model that can be used without limitation of time, space, and learning resources. WBL was developed by using the Research and Development (RnD) with a 4D (Define, Design, Develop, Disseminate) approach. To develop WBL products, researchers used the unified modeling language (UML), flowcharts, and context diagrams. The product produced was tested which included product validity testing, practicality testing, and product effectiveness testing. The testing results showed that the product was valid, practical and effective to be used as a guide for developing and implementing WBL in the face of OVID-19.
