There are various kinds of interaction-based E-Learning methods that can be used by educational institutions during the Covid 19 Pandemic, including the Inter-group collaborative and competitive method. Both of these learning methods are carried out in groups but differ in the form of interactions that occur between groups. For the collaborative method, the form of interaction that occurs is cooperation, whereas in the inter-group competitive method, the form of interaction that occurs is the existence of competition between groups. This type of research is quantitative comparative using the T test to determine differences in social interactions that occur in students before using collaborative and competitive methods-Inter-group with after using collaborative and competitive-Inter-group methods. The number of samples used in this study were 62 Widya Kartika University students divided into 2 classes, 24 students in the experimental class and 38 students in the control class. The results showed that there were differences in social interaction before and after using the inter-group and collaborative competitive methods. The recommendation of this study is that the interaction-based method can be used as a learning method to increase student social interaction during e-learning.


collaborative method, competitive inter group, social interaction.
