The development of science and technology requires universities not only to
matter but also to have abilities in their respective fields including computer
networks. The unavailability of network design laboratory and its minimum,
network design, computer network design and flexibility of face-to-face time
in the discussion of material compiled not in accordance with the
competencies in this course. To overcome these deficiencies in learning
activities, development of a project-based blended learning model is carried
out.The development carried out in this study uses the Puslitjaknov
development model which reduces the Borg and Gall stages to five stages
namely product analysis, initial product design, expert validation and
revision, field trials and implementation. The subjects of this study were
students of STMIK Indonesia Padang who took the Computer Network
Design and Management course in the 2019 academic year. Data were
collected by interview, observation, questionnaire and test. Data were
analyzed using quantitative and qualitative methods to produce research
products in the form of books, modules, learning plans and manuals for the
use of learning applications. Product validation by experts, practicality tests
carried out by users and effectiveness tests with student learning
outcomes.Based on the results of data analysis, the results of this study are:
1) Research has successfully developed a project-based blended learning
model in computer network design and management courses. 2) The
developed learning model syntax consists of 9 stages / syntax. 3) In
supporting learning activities, modules, RPS and manuals are used for
learning applications. All products and models developed have been
developed and are categorized as valid, practical and effective.
