- Nowadays, the use of blog in daily activity is increasing, yet research of how the blog used in teaching is still a few. Further contribution of how the blog used toward learning result is limited. To overcome this problem, a research was conducted which aimed: 1) to develop the classroom blog in engneering mathematics; 2) to find out whether there is an improvement of student’s comprehension ability in engineering mathematics or not; and 3) to find out how the students response after learning using classroom blog. The method of this research is research and development continued by quasi-experiment in limited implementation. Samples are taken from students of mechanical engineering of education department. Instruments used in this research are judgment sheets of testing media, pre-test and post-test instrument, and questionnaire sheets. After developing and testing it, the test toward classroom blog acquired result that the classroom blog is considered worthy, whereas hypothesis testing acquired result that the use of classroom blog increased the student’s comprehension ability in engineering mathematical. This is shown by index of normalized gain for 0.69 on students who implement classroom blog on intermediate criterion. Based on questionnaire, it acquired result that the students’ response toward classroom blog developed is favorable
