Ardiwinata Purnomo Purnomo The use of ICT in education has evolved into distance education management in the field of training, it aims to provide the widest possible access to education and training for trainees who do not have the opportunity to attend face-to-face education due to various problems. Based on Dapodik data, most playschool educators or teachers in Indonesia do not have an educational background that can support their competence. Thus, education and training services are one of the efforts that can be made to encourage the improvement of the competence of playschool educators. Through e-training with a blended approach, it is expected to be a solution because it has advantages including 1) affordable and efficient costs; 2) unlimited quota; 3) can be accessed via the internet; 4) flexible time. The approach taken is a qualitative research approach with a descriptive method using purposive sampling technique which representing training activities in Bogor Regency, Karang Regency, and Bekasi Regency, West Java, Indonesia. The results of the research on the application of e-training with a blended approach for playschool educators show a new model in the implementation of learning, namely combining face-to-face learning with online. Adaptation to e-training with a blended approach must be carried out following the changes and developments of an increasingly rapid era without compromising the objectives and learning outcomes in the training program. 2023-02-14T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Empowerment : Jurnal Ilmiah Program Studi Pendidikan Luar Sekolah USE OF ONLINE APPLICATIONS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC BY ADULT STUDENTS AT COMMUNITY LEARNING CENTERS 2023-03-25T11:50:17+00:00 Budi Santoso Ahmad Hufad Uyu Wahyudin Asep Saepudin Purnomo Purnomo <p>Implementation of learning at the Community Learning Center (PKBM) during the Covid 19 pandemic faced challenges, this was due to the diversity of backgrounds of students in PKBM.

To equal education, PKBM has a strategic function to serve all school-age children or people who want to go to school but are unable to attend school. Like others, PKBM Katimpun has also carried out its function to serve and provide education for the surrounding community. The presence of PKBM is a forum for carrying out various educational activities that are equivalent to formal schools in general. The problems faced by PKBM Katimpun are the need to increase expertise in the field of technology and information so that students can compete in the work field later. In addition, students also need to improve their academic abilities. In this case, English lessons are one of the subjects that contribute to the development of skills for students in their future work. Therefore, we took the initiative to combine these two targets into one training material which is expected to improve skills in IT as well as the ability to learn and write English texts. This community service activity is intended to provide training to PKBM Katimpun students through two materials, namely the use of the Canva application and learning to write procedure texts in English. 2023-02-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Empowerment : Jurnal Ilmiah Program Studi Pendidikan Luar Sekolah THE IMPACT OF TANJUNG SAKTI AGRITOURISM ON ENVIRONMENTAL PRESERVATION IN SINDANG PANJANG VILLAGE, LAHAT REGENCY 2023-03-25T11:52:52+00:00 Ade Anugra Utami Shomedran Shomedran <p><em>T</em> <em>This study aims to determine the impact of agro-tourism on environmental preservation in Sindang Panjang Village.
