Abstract—The development research being carried out has
the aim of producing digital content developed based on
information processing theory for the message design course in
Educational Technology Study Program in Education Science
Faculty of Universitas Pendidikan Ganesha. This is a
development research in which the Hannafin & Peck model is
used. The developed digital content is evaluated using formative
evaluation techniques, including 1) expert validation, 2)
one-to-one evaluation, and 3) small group evaluation. The
subjects involved in this study were 2 experts, namely media
experts and instructional design experts, 3 students in

The methods and instruments used to collect data in this study
were observation and questionnaires. Based on the expert’s
