Abstract


National Standard for Learning Process in Indonesia required teachers to integrate information technology specifically computer in their classes. However, until now the use of computers as a medium in the school still limited for collecting and presenting teaching materials.  This qualitative study aimed to explore students’ ability at mathematics education department in developing computer-based learning media. The results of the research will be used as a basis for improvement of the presentation of the computer application course itself and for designing teacher training in developing and using computer based learning media. The subject of this research are 24 students of mathematics education department who took computer applications courses.  Completed the courses the students were asked to complete a questionnaire about their basic ability in the developing computer-based learning media. These information used to show their improvement through the course. Computer-based teaching materials created by students were rated on four adequacy aspects, there are Instructional, Cosmetic, Program and Curriculum.  The ability of mathematics education students in the developing computer-based learning media are good with average score 3.04, their abilities in developing media increase from 1.88 to 3.04.  Computer-based learning media developed by students at mathematics education department can be used as learning media at mathematics classes.
