Ludfi Djajanto, Siti Rohani
In the era of industrial revolution 4.0, the use of technology and the internet was almost implemented in all fields including education, especially in the learning process. The use of information technology in learning becomes a necessity because it facilitates students and lecturers in carrying out the learning process. Furthermore, problem-based learning sourced from authentic problems are effective and motivating. This study aims to explore the effective implementation of a problem-based learning implemented in a blended system, as a teaching and learning strategy toward adaptive learning method. This experimental research was followed up by identification of students’ responses toward the implementation of the strategy. Respondents were 160 students taking a marketing management course; samples were selected through purposive sampling technique. Findings show that there were significant differences between control and experiment groups, confirming the higher significant progress of students learning through problem-based presented in a blended learning system than of students learning through conventional strategy. Nearly all respondents agreed that the problem-based learning presented in the blended system was interesting, motivating and assisting to gain the targeted learning outcomes. This strategy was also one step toward the implementation of adaptive learning method that put individualized learning in a computerized system.
