This research is development research with 4D models, consists of 4 main steps: define, design, develop, and disseminate. Data were collected from 70 automotive industry employees using a questionnaire. Product testing involved 5 experts in vocational education, information technology, and learning media. The data were analyzed through qualitative analysis and quantitative descriptive statistics. The results showed that, first, LMS needs to have an attractive appearance, simple, elegant, complete, neat, and structured menus, downloadable materials, updated logos, notifications, delivery status, separation of materials and questions, clear images, animation, and various learning media. Second, LMS results are developed without using the available platforms but as needed by customizing the web.
