Baharuddin Baharuddin, Juhriyansyah Dalle


The study aims to develop a prototype eLearning system and to gather feedback from teachers on the developed prototype to demonstrate its effectiveness. The study uses a four-phase iterative process to develop and analyze a prototype eLearning system: understanding the problem, designing the system, developing the system, and gathering user feedback. Seventeen teacher who teach physically disabled children in five schools in Banjarmasin South Kalimantan Indonesia were involved in setting up the operating procedures, working on the development of the school, and involved in the user feedback sessions varied among the schools. Results reveal that this prototype significantly helps teachers of children with special needs. It is recommended that the authorized body considers developing a policy for all schools for children with special needs, especially schools that support physically disabled learners, to implement this eLearning system.
