Analyzing the Validity of Interactive Multimedia-based Learning on Acid Rain Content


The primary abilities of physics students at the University of Muhammadiyah Makassar against the scientific concepts learned at the secondary school level vary, resulting in a complex integrated science learning process. The university follows the conventional methods of learning science with little or no use of modern technology. Thus, the present study was conducted to develop interactive multimedia learning using the Macromedia Flash program on integrated science content. The research consisted of two stages. While the first stage included the identification and content analysis of integrated science materials, the second stage comprised designing interactive multimedia learning and testing its validity. Validation was carried out on seven participants and analyzed using the Aiken validation. The validation results showed that the interactive multimedia developed is valid and can be used in Integrated Science lectures.
