Development of trainer sensor as media learning control systems for engine cadets at Merchant Marine Polytechnic Surabaya

Keywords: development, learning media, trainer, control system preliminary


The purpose of this research designed to: (1) develop sensor trainers that fit the needs of control system subjects (2) develop sensor trainer with good performance, and (3) test the feasibility of sensor miner as media learning for control system learning at Surabaya Merchant Marine Polytechnic. This study was a Research and Development (R&D) in the field of education. The development research model used was ADDlE: Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation. The instrument used in this study was questionnaire with four options answer of Likert scale.

The validity test of instrument carried out by consultation section with material experts and media experts. Instrument reliability calculated using alpha formula and produced a reliability value of 0.87 (very reliable). There are three aspects measured at this implementation stage, aspects of material quality, media operations, and learning aspects.

The results obtained for quality of material got a percentage of 78.76%, for media operations got 68.77%, and for learning got a percentage of 76.35%. Of the three percentages, a total percentage of 76.62% was obtained, so that the media trainer censor was declared feasible to be used as a learning media for the control system course after the feasibility test was conducted by the user.
