Abstract

Stereotyped as boring modules, some people considered theoretical-taught classes to be less interesting in comparison with the practice-as-research classes. This research investigates how the educators in the History of Indonesia Fine Art module attempted to overcome these challenges by renewing their teaching techniques and using new media as tools to reach the objectives of the module. As a nature of history module, the History of Indonesia Fine Art module is packed with insights concerning the nation’s ancient artefacts and their significances. It is designed to help the student to understand their ancestor’s way of life through their material cultures. Ancient artefacts that generally are deemed as outdate objects actually possess incredible potential, for those who have learned its pastime significance and draw its correlation with today’s society. The objective of the History of Indonesia Fine Art module is to encourage student to take history as their source of inspiration in creating their artworks. To help the learning process in the class, various methods and learning media were adapted each time. Now, with the increasing use of gadgets such as tablet or cellular phone, we can transform the History of Indonesia Fine Art into a digital book or e-book. With that background, the use of digital book of the History of Indonesia Fine Art can facilitate easier independent learning.
