This research aimed to analyze the needs of EarthComm-based learning multimedia of geography, the effectiveness of the multimedia to improve students' motivation and spatial ability; and analyze the feasibility of multimedia utilization in two public high schools in Surakarta (MAN 2 and SMA MTA) by using ADDIE development model. The data of learning multimedia needs were collected by distributing questionnaires to the targeted correspondents (2 teachers and 30 students). Meanwhile, regarding the effectiveness of the multimedia in improving students' spatial ability and motivation, the data were collected by utilizing Spatial Thinking Ability Test (STAT) and questionnaires. The assessment of feasibility was done by distributing experts' validation sheet and students' assessment. The data analysis tool used was one-way ANOVA. The result of the need analysis shows that >75% of students have medium level of motivation, >90% of students have low spatial ability, and >80% of the students need a more innovative geography lesson. After implementing EarthComm-based geography multimedia learning, it is known that the multimedia is effective to improve the students' motivation and spatial ability which is shown by the significance value gained (0.00<0.05). Furthermore, based on the experts' judgment and small-scale trials done, it is concluded that the EarthComm-based geography multimedia learning is feasible to be implemented.
