INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA APPLICATION BASED ON ANDROID SMARTPHONES ON DNA STRUCTURE MATERIAL
The education system uses more technology-based visualization in the 4.0 industrial revolution era which is used as a tool in learning that is more effective, and efficient, interactive. Lecturers can arrange more interesting learning materials by adding digital instructional media, such as instructional media based on Android smartphones. Based on the results of observations, generally students who do not understand the material concepts in the Genetics course, especially on the material of DNA structure. DNA structure material is very difficult to understand, and abstract, and student learning activities and outcomes are still low on the DNA structure material. So, it requires instructional media that can visualize these materials so that it is easy for students to understand. This study aims to produce instructional media applications based on Android smartphones on DNA structure material. The type of research is research and development using a 4-D model, namely define, design, and develop. Furthermore, the data obtained were analysed descriptively. Instructional media application based on Android smartphones on DNA structure material shows that the developed instructional media are valid (96%), practical (94%), effective increase student activity and learning outcomes, and the disseminate stage was carried out through the Play Store.
