The research was part of ongoing research, aimed to develop an interactive multimedia (IM) on the Introductory Physics courses to support the learning model that can develop problem solving skills and application of physics concepts for prospective of vocational high school teachers in foods program.
The research used Research and Development (R & D) approach by using the first three stages of 4-D models, i.e. define, design, and develop. The details of the stages were: (1) the literature review and need assessment, (2) formulation of competences indicators, (3) formulation of learning model, (4) formulation of the IM design, (4) the development of story boards, (5) obtaining relevant files, video, graphics/animation, and audio production, (6) authoring and debugging, (7) phase I try out, (8) revision I, (9) expert judgment, (10) Phase II try out, and (11) revision II. For testing purposes, the research subjects were prospective of vocational high school teacher in foods program on a state university in East Java. The sample selected by purposive random sampling technique. Data analysis performed by descriptive analysis and Mann-Whitney U test to compare the sample responses results of phase I and phase II try out.
The research has developed IM in elasticity and fluid concepts. The research showed that according to student responses, the IM assessed 94.8% of the ideal conditions in stage I and 96.0% in stage II. The significant improved responses occurred in sub concept “stress and strain” and “Young’s modulus”. The research also showed that expert judged 85.6% of ideal conditions on the content, technical and presentation of IM. These results indicate that IM has been developed appropriates for use in teaching and learning Introductory Physics for prospective of vocational high school teachers in foods program.
Keywords: interactive multimedia, introductory physics, prospective of vocational high school teachers in foods program.
