The Interior Design courses emphasizing accuracy requires high learning motivation. One stimulus to grow motivation is by applying teaching methods that are in accordance with the characteristics of the course, namely cyber learning methods that also facilitate accuracy and efficiency. The purpose of this research is to improve learning motivation in interior design courses through cyber learning methods employing steps of project-based learning (PjBL). The study included quasiexperiments using two-group post test design. The instrument of learning motivation was adapted from McClelland’s motivational theory. The number of participants was 60 students divided in two groups. The first students group learned by using conventional methods (control group), while the second students group learned by using cyber methods (experimental group). The number of learning was 10 meetings. After completing the meetings, the two groups were measured based on the learning motivation. The results of the study indicate that cyber learning methods can increase student’s learning motivation in interior design courses. Result shows that the experimental group of students has higher learning motivation than students in control group who were leaved uninterfered with the conventional method—the lectures.
