The aim of this study was to develop simple English digital multimedia materials for Physical Education Teacher Education students. The method of the study was design-based research. The research procedures involved need analysis, draft design, material development, and initial implementation. The materials were created by using Powtoon application program. To discover the students’ needs, the expert comments, and students’ perspective of the materials, interview and focus group discussion were conducted. The data from interview and focus group discussion were analyzed inductively. The result of the study were simple materials for teaching English for Physical Education Teacher Education students for opening Physical Education class.
