Abstract


Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk memberikan gambaran pentingnya penggunaan aplikasi online terutama WhatsApp (WA) dalam kegiatan pembelajaran terutama perkuliahan Penilaian Pendidikan Fisika. Tiga puluh dua responden yang terlibat dalam penelitian ini adalah calon guru fisika di jurusan fisika FMIPA UM. Metode pengumpulan data yang digunakan dalam kegiatan ini berupa angket, observasi dan wawancara. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan adanya pengaruh positif dari penggunaan WA bagi keaktifan mahasiswa dalam berdiskusi serta kuliah baik dalam perkuliahan tatap muka maupun dalam jaringan (daring). Mahasiswa juga merasa perlu untuk mencoba menerapkan penggunaan WA dalam kegiatan pembelajaran kelak maupun dalam perkuliahan lain. Kedekatan serta diskusi antar mahasiswa dan dosen-mahasiswa dapat terjadi dengan baik serta meningkatkan motivasi belajar mahasiswa. Penelitian ini juga menunjukkan perlunya penelitian lebih lanjut mengenai pengaruh penggunaan WA terhadap prestasi belajar mahasiswa.

 

This study aims to describe the importance of Online Application use particularly WhatsApp (WA) during learning activities in particular in a Physics Education Assessment lecture. Thirty-two respondents involved are pre-service Physics Teachers learning at Physics Department FMIPA UM. Questionnaire and interview were employed to obtain data about the importance of WA in the lecture. The study shows positive influences of WA application to students’ activity during discussion section in both face-to-face meeting and online discussion. The participants also thought that they need to employ WA during both future Physics class and other lectures. The application also encouraged student discussion with their peer and also the lecturer. This study also indicates the need of further research about WA application and students’ achievement.
