The primary research tool was a questionnaire, The finding revealed a positive inclination among students toward utilizing Google Classroom for vocabulary instruction. The study underscored the efficacy of Google Classroom in facilitating vocabulary acquisition through its interactive features, enabling seamless communication between peers and instructors for the dissemination of vocabulary materials. This is proved by the students' responses, for example;84.2% of students agreed that Google Classroom can be downloaded easily on multiple devices, and another 84.2% of students agreed that they enjoy using Google Classroom for learning vocabulary because of its free accessibility. However, an element of uncertainty persists among students concerning the potential of Google Classroom to either supplement or supplant traditional classroom settings in vocabulary learning activities. This research sheds light on the promising role of technology-enhanced learning platforms like Google Classroom in fostering vocabulary development while also recognizing the need for further exploration of their integration within broader education.</em></p> 2023-09-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Mada Gymnastiar Andy Nugraha, Mohamad Irvansyah Satria Yudha, Dian Fadhilawati LEGAL PROTECTION FOR CONSUMERS FOR ELECTRONIC GOODS THAT DO NOT HAVE SNI (INDONESIAN NATIONAL STANDARD) 2023-10-10T03:06:59+00:00 Dani fadhlurrahman Fauzul Aliwarman <p><em>The purpose of writing this article is to examine legal protection for consumers for electronic goods that do not have SNI (Indonesian National Standard), and understand consumer legal remedies for resolving disputes over losses caused by electronic goods that do not have SNI (Indonesian National Standard).
