Development of Digital Sway Teaching Materials for Online Learning in the COVID-19 Pandemic Era


Learning in the COVID-19 pandemic era requires practical teaching materials that are easily accessible to students. Digital teaching materials are alternative solutions to accommodate online learning needs. This study aimed to produce digital teaching materials using Microsoft Office 365 Sway in the era of the COVID-19 pandemic. This was development research and the ADDIE model was used, which consists of five stages, namely analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation. The sample consisted of 242 students in Elementary School Teacher Education at the University of Muhammadiyah Malang. The results of the validation tests for teaching materials experts, material experts, and linguists showed that the average score obtained was 81.8 with valid criteria. The average score obtained by the students with very practical criteria was 3.6. User responses showed that students were interested in, and easily accessed teaching materials via URL, and digital teaching materials were equipped with videos, animations, pictures and graphic information to support lecture materials.
