Online course is a common course in the development countries, since most of the people are able to afford computer facilities. Indonesia, as a developing country, has to face the reality that online course is still rare and regarded as an “alien”. Besides the limitation capabilities of the Indonesian people in technology access, there are also many limitation capabilities in the understanding the role of virtual learning. As a country that has an oral culture, students prefer to listen to their teachers. Learning without teacher is something unusual for them. Therefore, the development of on-line course is a challenge. This article would discuss the participation of Indonesian students in online course, especially an asynchronous online course. The article would discuss the effect that asynchronous online course has on students level of participation in self-directed learning environment, that is a distance education institution. The discussion would be based on the experience of Universitas Terbuka (UT), a distance education institution in Indonesia, in conducting the asynchronous online course. Online course in UT is offered to the students as one of the learning supports. The discussion in this article would be expected to provide information that can be used in developing and enhancing a better asynchronous online course.
