Development of Mobile Learning Based on Digital Entrepreneurs Using Raspberry Pi on TVET

Rahmat Fadillah, - Ganefri, Asmar Yulastri, Hendra Hidayat


Mobile learning is a method of instruction that uses portable electronics like laptops, smartphones, mobile phones, and PCs so that students may access lesson materials, instructions, and apps whenever and wherever they are without being constrained by time or place. This is an innovation regarding a systematic and structured application-based learning system as an interactive medium for students, especially at TVET. This article aims to develop mobile learning using a mini server Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ based on digital entrepreneurs (digipreneur) that runs on the Moodle LMS as a source of learning content so that learning can be carried out interactively and flexibly, without having to be connected to the internet, or classrooms that are not effective even in areas with no internet access. This activity goes through 2 stages of system design known as client-server. In designing the server, the Raspberry Pi mini server model B+ configuration is carried out as a source of digital learning resources by using several supporting applications such as MySQL server, SSH, PHPMyAdmin, and Apache in designing the client using the Moodle LMS application, which contains digipreneur-based digital learning materials and resources, all stored in the database server. Three primary users are built into the Mobile Learning Database System: Administrators, Lecturers, and Students. This application is expected to be innovative and the right solution in terms of learning and become an alternative problem-solving tool in education.
