A total of 151 lecturers from various private universities in Indonesia were involved in this study. Closed questionnaires and semi-structured interviews are used to collect data. Hermeneutic techniques with an inquencing narrative approach are used to analyze data.  Most lecturers argue positively against the implementation of distance lectures, although there is a small part that they complain about. A total of 140 participants from 151 lecturers were satisfied and comfortable conducting online lectures because of the flexible, highly effective time and place and supporting infrastructure of the teaching institutions.
