The results of the Independent Sample t-Test show that the value of Sig. for the participation variable of 0.004 <0.05 and the Sig. for the understanding variable of 0.005 <0.05. While, the MANOVA test results show the value of Sig. for the participation variable of 0.004 <0.05 and the Sig. for the understanding variable of 0.005 <0.05. This means that there are differences in the increase in participation and understanding of elementary school teacher candidate after using Edmodo-based Elearning. In addition, the application of Edmodo-based E-learning also has a positive effect on the participation and understanding of elementary school teacher candidate on science topics. Edmodo-based e-learning makes elementary school teacher candidates more active in participating and easier in understanding science lecture material 1. Abstrak Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengetahui pengaruh E-learning berbasis Edmodo terhadap partisipasi dan pemahaman calon guru Sekolah Dasar pada mata kuliah IPA 1 materi biologi. Penelitian ini menggunakan metode eksperimen semu dengan menggunakan desain penelitian non-equivalent control group design. Sampel penelitian ini adalah 49 calon guru Sekolah Dasar semester 2 Universitas PGRI Yogyakarta. Teknik pengumpulan data menggunakan instrumen angket partisipasi dan tes pemahaman melalui pretest-posttest. Hasil Uji Independent Sample t-Test menunjukkan nilai Sig. untuk variabel partisipasi sebesar 0.004 < 0.05 dan nilai Sig. untuk variabel pemahaman sebesar 0.005 < 0.05. Sedangkan hasil uji MANOVA menunjukkan nilai Sig. untuk variabel partisipasi sebesar 0.004 < 0.05 dan nilai Sig. untuk variabel pemahaman sebesar 0.005 < 0.05. Hal ini berarti bahwa terdapat perbedaan peningkatan partisipasi dan pemahaman calon guru Sekolah Dasar setelah menggunakan E-learning berbasis Edmodo. Selain itu, penerapan E-learning berbasis Edmodo juga berpengaruh positif terhadap partisipasi dan pemahaman calon guru Sekolah Dasar pada topik IPA. E-learning berbasis Edmodo menjadikan calon guru Sekolah Dasar lebih aktif dalam berpartisipasi dan lebih mudah dalam memahami materi perkuliahan IPA 1. Kata kunci: e-learning berbasis edmodo, partisipasi calon guru SD, pemahaman IPA. 222 learning to enable to give positive pull to participation and comprehension of the elementary school teacher candidate in Natural Science. CONCLUSION According to the finding and discussion explained, it can be concluded that the use of Edmodo-based E-learning takes the significant and positive effect on participation and comprehension of the elementary school teacher candidate in Natural Science biology material. The existence of online classes can open a chance for the elementary school teacher candidate to gain achievement. The elementary school teacher candidate can participate actively in lecture activities and can re-review about received comprehension and it can increase knowledge broadly through the available information on the Edmodo platform. The elementary school teacher candidate can access knowledge anytime and anywhere as well as can be more intimate with the expert through communication globally. However, in turn to implementation of learning online, tutorial or explanation about how to use the learning platform is highly needed so the study can run more effectively.
