Abstract—The purpose of this research is to develop interactive learning media about classification of organisms. This research used modification of 4D method (Define, Design, Develop, and Disseminate from Thiagarajan et al., 1974). Invertebrate Interactive Dichotomous Key (Invertebrate-IDKM) is given in the learning at lower secondary school. Percentage of the expert validation is 80%. According to the validation result, we conclude that Invertebrate-IDKM is valid in the media, materials, languages, and eligible in the learning about the classification of organisms especially classification of invertebrate animals. Invertebrate-IDKM increases learning motivation especially lower secondary school students because it encourages interaction and use technology.
Index Terms—4D method, interactive media, Invertebrate-IDKM, motivation.
