Abstract


It is no doubt that information technology has played significant importance in higher education in particular in the era of the 4.0 industrial revolution. The progress in technology is expected to support and facilitate the teaching and learning process. One information technology product that can be used is a learning management system (LMS) such as Schoology. Schoology offers all the tools in classroom management which are needed to create interesting content, support learning activities, and assess student understanding. However, the platform itself being used in a chemistry classroom is still rarely found. For this reason, the purpose of this study is to investigate chemistry classroom management using LMS Schoology. A quantitative-descriptive analysis was used to analyze data. Registered inorganic chemistry undergraduate students (n = 52) of semester IV participated in this study. The data was collected using a 28-items questionnaire which accumulated the perception of students regarding chemical class management using Schoology. The results of the study showed positive responses toward that management of teaching materials, management discussions, assignments, quizzes/exams, management of communication and ultimately interaction using LMS Schoology aced the chemistry classroom management.
