Abstract: Some research in physics teaching in secondary schools shows that cooperative learning has the potential to improve student performance. Moodle is a learning management system that has open source platform modules that can be customised according to user's needs. The purpose of this study is to figure out the effectiveness of combination between the advantages of cooperative learning and e-learning as blended learning. The research objective is to see the effect of cooperative-blended learning strategy to the learning performance on physics in high school grade XII. This research is pre-test-post-test control group design using motivation as covariate. The dependent variable is a learning strategy. The independent variable is a learning achievement. The result showed that students who were taught using cooperative learning had higher learning achievement than those taught using face-to-face learning. Motivation can be used as predictor on cooperative-blended learning. Student who had higher motivation tend to get better learning achievement.
