In order to validate your landcover classification, I would suggest you to use Google Earth Engine.
Please have a look to the Collect Earth User Manual at the point 6.4 (Collect Earth data as training sites for a supervised classification) and try to follow the instructions on how to create a fusion table using your data and validate the data with a Landsat map.

Hi Wahyu,

We have recently published a practical guide about map accuracy assessment and area estimation. It uses Open Foris and other open source tools and gives step-by-step guidance. You can download the document here:
