Included in the learning of Kawih "land of Sunda" by Koko Koswara in class VIII junior high school is done online. The method in this study uses quantitative research. The results of this study are still many students who do not know the Sundanese kawih. Students' understanding of the material for the lyrics of the kawih song "Land of Sunda by Koko Koswara" can be improved by providing material via powerpoint or youtube which is done online from using the googlemeet application with educators.
