Fajar Indra Kusuma, Nunuk Suryani, Sri Sumaryati


Online learning is a solution used during the Covid 19 pandemic. This study aims to determine the conditions of learning during the pandemic and the development of mobile application-based learning media. This research is the result of a survey conducted on 126 students of the Civil Engineering Vocational High School (SMK) in Surakarta. This research is a Research and Development (R&D) research in the context of developing mobile application-based learning media. The development model adapted in this study is the Alessi and Trolip media development model. The adaptation stages in this research are planning, design, and development. The results of the development of learning media by researchers indicate that experts and students have positive opinions about this Cellular Application-based learning media. All experts from media experts, materials experts and expert practitioners stated that this media is "Very Worthy". The results of the perception questionnaire of 126 students in Surakarta also rated this media "Very Worthy" with a percentage value of 86.30%. In addition, learning media based on Mobile Applications is proven to be effective in increasing students' learning motivation at SMK Surakarta. With the acquisition of scores based on the results of statistical tests with the help of the SPSS 25 program, obtained a significance level of 0.000 less than 0.025 (0.000 < 0.025), or or tcount > t table for learning motivation, namely 10.450>2, 000 while the value then Ho is rejected and Ha is accepted or there is a difference in mean between the experimental class and the control class. In addition, the posttest average value of the experimental class students' learning motivation was higher with a score of 86.6 when compared to the control class which only had a score of 75.9. These results indicate that learning using mobile application-based learning media is more effective than classes that do not use mobile or conventional-based learning media.
