E-Modules for Basic Science and Elementary School Concepts Based on Cases in the Context of Local Wisdom





Preliminary Study, E-Module, Case-Based Learning, Local Wisdom, Science Learning


Purpose: This preliminary study aims to describe the need for developing an e-module in a case-based Elementary Science Basic Concepts course with the context of local wisdom and determine the characteristics of the e-module to be developed.


Method: This research is a Research and Development that focuses on analyzing the needs of product development. The subjects in this study were 30 Elementary School Teacher Program students and three science core lecturers at the Mpu Kuturan Singaraja State Hindu Religion College. The data collection technique was carried out primarily through questionnaires given to students and lecturers and secondarily through e-module documents at five tertiary institutions, which can be accessed via Google searches.


Results and Conclusion: The results of this introduction show that product development in the form of an e-module course based on case-based Elementary Science Basic Concepts with the context of local wisdom is very much needed in the learning process because it can overcome problems of learning difficulties, integrates with local wisdom, and offers better interactivity compared to current e-modules. The characteristics of the e-module course in the case-based Elementary Science Basic Concepts course with the context of local wisdom structurally consists of 8 components, namely: (i) topic or subject matter; (ii) instructions for use; (iii) learning objectives; (iv) learning content; (v) summary, (vi) evaluation complete with discussion, (vii) glossary; and (viii) references.
