Luhung Achmad Perguna, Idris Idris, Irawan Irawan


This study aims to provide interactive, active participatory and collaborative media for learners through MOOC in the Introduction to Sociology course. This paper presents alternative learning by utilizing MOOC-based information technology as one way to achieve learning objectives. This development uses research and development (R&D) with development steps consisting of preproduction, production, and postproduction. This development was also validated and implemented during the development process. This study found that development products are feasible to be implemented as learning products. In addition, the results of the implementation test also showed that the use of MOOC media through the development of context-based video learning can improve student understanding more easily, more effectively, and more efficiently. Thus, this development product can be one of the learning media that can be used in the sociology learning process.
