Abstract

This study investigates the engagement of students studying Pancasila (i.e., Indonesian philosophy) through interactive comics, with consideration of their backgrounds and reading habits. The data were collected through a survey delivered via Google Forms. The subjects were first-year students at Petra Christian University (PCU) studying Pancasila through interactive comics. The data were explored using descriptive statistics, hypothesis testing, and machine learning. We found that 72.55 percent of the respondents understood the material delivered through the interactive comics in detail. In addition, they described the method as fun. The hypothesis testing showed that the students were able to study Pancasila through interactive comics successfully regardless of their background (e.g., gender, GPA, living situation, major), reading preferences, and average reading duration. However, students’ majors influenced the opinion that interactive comics led to a more interesting, up-to-date, and fun learning experience. Students who generally like e-books preferred learning Pancasila through interactive comics over conventional methods, and students who like reading novels concluded that learning Pancasila through interactive comics helped them study. Ultimately, 62.75 percent of the participants recommended exploring Pancasila through interactive comics. Based on the data, we can recommend using this approach.
