INTRODUCTION
Listening subject is one of four skills in learning English at Senior High School.
English listening skill is a subject that explores our comprehension to get information,
especially in English, either directly through conversation or indirectly through media such
as songs or movies. In learning English, each learning activity should be done in
interestingly, so the students can have spirit and motivation in joining English class. But
learning English in Senior High School at this time is mostly focused on vocabulary,
grammar pattern and structure.
The basic problems encountered in teaching and learning listening is the students
are rare in listening practice, learning media in listening subject has not been used
effectively by the teachers and learning techniques in listening subject are lack of variation
in which the processes of teaching and learning is only done by reading the text and the
students are asked to listen or hear. Its like what Yayat (2012) pointed out. He also said
that teachers should implement more variations of teaching techniques and the use of
media. Therefore, the application of methods and media of learning by teachers is one way
to improve the learning process. To get this purpose, it needs a teaching method which can
motivate the students so that they could actively learn English by using learning media.
Today, learning English at Senior High School is less attention so that listening subject
becomes less interactive in terms of delivering content learning materials.
From the analysis of the previous study by Zholikhah (2010) entitled The
improvement of listening skill through CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning)
method at the tenth grade students of SMA Negeri 1 Babadan, the researcher got an
information that the implementation of CALL method in teaching and learning process
gave satisfactory results in increasing students proficiency in listening subject.
In this modern era, teacher should know about technology because teaching will be
interesting if the teacher can use the variation in teaching and learning process. The suitable
media for learning in listening subject today is to use media-based technology information.
Nowadays is the era of information so that technology of information plays an important
role in the learning process. The good way of delivery listening material must be combined
with the maximum role of technology of information.
The options of CALL media, which is suitable with the teaching and learning
process, especially in listening subject are Ulead, Movie Maker, HotPotatoes, Adobe
Auditon, Longtion Autorun. For those applications, the appropriate creative application in
listening subject is Longtion Autorun. It is suitable with the listening subject because we
can design the listening material by ourselves. If in the course book the material less of
interactive, we can add more content in this application so the listening material can be
more interactive and interesting to be learned by the students. Using Longtion Autorun
application, the materials that deliver to the students can be more interesting because we
can also add more applications in this Longtion Autorun. This program supports the
students not to study only in the class, but also out of the class in order they can be more
confident in learning listening.
The researcher has conducted the survey on Senior High School in Morowudi, SMA
Muhammadiyah 8 Morroudi, Cerme Gresik. The tenth grade students have been selected
and the researcher has also conducted some interviews with one of the English teachers
there, and has given questionnaire to the 36 students. There were some problems when the
teacher taught; the students were not too interested in studying the lesson.
The writer formulates a question in carrying out this study. The question was about
how to make interactive listeening material using Longtion Autorun application for the
tenth grade students at SMA Muhammadiyah 8 Morowudi.

METHOD

The method was an important thing to conduct the research and also to answer
certain question. The research questions were explained in the introduction. The question
was about how to make interactive listening material using Longtion Autorun application
for the tenth grade students at SMA Muhammadiyah 8 Morowudi, based on the statement
the researcher case about the ways in developing material through Longtion Autorun
application. In this study the researcher uses research & development (R&D). For
developing the material, the researcher must pass some steps. There are many instructional
development models. One of them is using ADDIE Model that stands for Analysis, Design,
Development, Implementation, and Evaluation.
To gather the need analysis, the researcher did an analysis by interviewing the
teacher to investigate the needs of the students of SMA Muhammadiyah 8 Morowudi,
Cerme. The researcher did the interview with the English teacher. The next step is giving

curriculum and based on the syllabus that composed by the researcher. It focused on
listening skill. After get the needs the researcher develop it into Longtion Autorun
application. In evaluating the product, the researcher use two expert validation of this
product; first expert validator checked the development of Longtion Autorun application

In developing the material the researcher use two expert of validations who checked
the project was ready to be released or not and there must be revision. There were two
expert validation of this product; first expert validator checked the development of
Longtion Autorun application and second expert validator checked the development of

experience in using Longtion Autorun application, hot potatoes and adobe audition. The
second expert validator is Mrs. Ana Abidin, S.Pd as the expert validator for development
listening material of this product. She is English teacher of SMA Muhammadiyah 8
Morowudi, Cerme, she is the correct validator to check the material for students. She
knows the background of students, is the material too difficult to students to understand or
not.
The result shows that the researcher should change the fronts color because it does
not contrast with the background page. Then, corrected some grammatical error on this
