Online Discussion with Virtual Classroom Method as Supporting Lecturer Digital Aircraft Simulator

Nurcahyani Dewi Retnowati, Astika Ayuningtyas, Awandha Prabowo, Asih Pujiastuti


E-Learning is a system or educational concept that uses information technology in teaching and learning to use electronic media—usually used for teaching and learning processes within an unlimited distance. In the learning process of the Digital Aircraft Simulator course using e-learning, some obstacles are difficult to understand, and there is no discussion facility in the material section. Based on this, e-learning with the virtual classroom method is expected to overcome these problems so that the learning process can run well and effectively. In the online discussion feature with the virtual classroom method, there are two methods: synchronous and asynchronous. Based on the test using a white box to 13 paths for three days obtained a success rate of 100%. While the black box test obtained a success rate of 100% for the faculty and 100% for the student side, accessed using a laptop device with Windows 7 and 8 operating systems. While accessed using the Android smartphone, Kitkat, Lollipop, and Oreo obtained a success rate of 80% for the lecturer and 60% for the student. Then the test results with the Guttman scale obtained a success rate close to the percentage of 92%. The online discussion feature in the virtual classroom can facilitate communication between the lecturer, and students can also directly ask the lecturer through this feature when there is lecturer material and explanations that are not understood
