This research was aimed to develop and evaluate the quality of interactive book with music activities to promote community-based learning for undergraduate students and to examine the needs, the learning achievement and the satisfaction of the sampling group. In this study, the sampling group consisted of 30 fourth-year students from the Department of Educational Communications and Technology, Faculty of Industrial Education and Technology, King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi in the first semester of the academic year 2019. They were purposively chosen out of those who participated in at least one activity per semester and enrolled in the ETM 361 Presentation Skills 2 course and were willing to participate in this research. The statistical methods in this study were mean score, standard deviation and t-test. The developed interactive book contained 6 parts as follows: 1) community-based learning; 2) community under the bridge zone 1; 3) community behind Suan Thonburirom; 4) community Moo 3 Bangmod; 5) community in Klong Toei; 6) community in Bang Chan, Petchaburi. The research findings showed that the sampling group expressed the highest level of needs (x̅ = 4.55, S.D. = 0.57). The quality of the book as evaluated by the panel of experts showed that the quality of the contents was at a very good level (x̅ = 4.74, S.D. = 0.32) and the quality of the media presentation was at a good level (x̅ = 4.50, S.D. = 0.51). The learning achievement test of the sampling group showed that their average post-test score was higher than their average pre-test score with statistical significance at the .05 level (t-test = 10.94). The sampling group expressed the highest level of satisfaction (x̅ = 4.72, S.D. = 0.46). These findings confirmed the research hypotheses. It can be concluded that the interactive book with music and activities to promote community-based learning for undergraduate students was of good quality and could be distributed for further use.
