The selection of the Project Based Learning (PjBL) model provides opportunities
for students to explore content with various techniques which are a means for themselves and
collaborative experiments. The research was conducted on students of the Computer
Engineering and Informatics Education Study Program at State University of Makassar
(UNM), Indonesian. In general, the research objective was to determine the effectiveness of
the PjBL Model in increasing motivation, activity and learning outcomes through online
learning. This research is a quasi-experimental research type. The study population numbered
125 students who studied teaching and learning strategies courses. Purposive sampling
technique was used to determine the number of selected samples as many as 76 people who
were scattered in the experimental group and the control group. Data collection using
questionnaires, observation and tests through digital instruments have been validated by
experts. Data analysis used descriptive statistical techniques, with the SPSS version 25 for
Windows application. The results showed; (1) Student learning motivation in the
experimental group has increased; (2) Student learning activities in the experimental group
tend to be better, and (3) The increase in learning outcomes is high, from an average value of
60.26 to an average value of 85.27.
