The content validity is checked by means of IOC (Item Objective Congruence Index). The means and standard deviation are used for the analysis and presentation of data. The study indicated that the learning achievement on South Africa's principles lesson by using Google classroom with Active learning, before learning the mean was at Xˉ = 3.12 and the standard deviation was SD = 0.58. This is because the use of Google classroom with Active learning allowed students to research and practice together in finding answers on their own for activities in Google classroom. As a results, students had developed their learning potential effectively after students have studied by using Google classroom with Active learning. The students’ learning achievement increased by comparison with the pre-test, the mean was Xˉ = 5.95 and the standard deviation was SD = 0.69. The students were satisfied with the use of Google classroom with Active Learning. Overall, the average of Xˉ = 4.83 with the SD deviation = 0.28 and the result of the record of student's responsibility behavior after using Google classroom passed the evaluation of 95% meaning that most of the students had a total score between 6-10 points from all the 5 times of the assignments.
