Material technology course was one of the compulsory courses for Bachelor of Architecture Program in STT Stikma Internasional Malang. This course was offered in semester two (even semester) in the new academic year for 3 credits. This course aimed to make the students able to explain type, characteristic, and technical specification of some basic materials for construction, and its application in construction and some finishing material for construction. The insufficient laboratory facilities and infrastructure made the teaching material which were supposed to be done in laboratory must be done theoretically in classroom. The limited collection of books in the library also caused students difficulty in finding appropriate learning resources according to the course material. Therefore, this study aimed to produce interactive digital book products (e-books) on Material Technology courses which were appropriate and attractive to students, especially for Bachelor of Architecture in STT Stikma Internasional Malang. This research was a research and development model which main purpose was to produce products in the form of interactive digital books, especially for Material Technology courses. The development model used was the 4D model which consisted of 4 main steps: define, design, develop, and disseminate. Data collection techniques were carried out through observation, literature review and questionnaires. The questionnaire was used to carry out validation tests by material and media experts, as well as user development tests. The results of the material expert validation showed that this interactive e-book was very appropriate with an average percentage of 88.3%. The validation results of the media experts indicated that this interactive e-book was very appropriate with an average percentage of 89.6%. The results of the assessment involving 3 students as users also showed that this interactive e-book was very appropriate with a percentage of 88.8%.
