This study aimed to develop and evaluate AutoCAD digital learning media using the 4D Research and Development (R&D) method. The method consists of four stages: Define, Design, Develop, and Disseminate, with the goal of improving students' architectural engineering drawing skills. The study involved 21 architecture students who participated in the pre-test and post-test to assess the effectiveness of the developed learning media in improving their architectural engineering drawing skills. The media development process involved several stages, including needs analysis and instructional design. The final stage involved creating interactive digital content that is relevant to the needs of modern students. The effectiveness of the learning media was evaluated through an experimental design involving a group class. The evaluation consisted of a pre-test and post-test to assess the improvement in students' architectural drawing skills. The results revealed a significant increase in post-test scores compared to the pre-test, indicating that the digital learning media was effective in enhancing students' architectural drawing skills. Students provided positive feedback on the interactivity and practicality of the learning media, indicating their satisfaction with the learning experience. The study's findings confirm the significant potential of digital learning media in architecture education. Furthermore, the study suggests that there is a need for further integration of digital technologies in the architecture curriculum to enhance learning outcomes. Future research should focus on larger scale testing to validate the effectiveness of the digital learning media. Additionally, content development should cover a wider range of architectural design aspects to ensure the learning media remains relevant and comprehensive. Future research directions could include exploring the long-term retention of skills and investigating the impact of different instructional approaches on learning outcomes.

Keywords: Digital learning media, AutoCAD, 4D R&D, architectural drawing techniques, educational evaluation
