Abstract: The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of adapting e-learning using self-developed hybrid applications called FA4v1 based on IR4.0 technology for an accounting course in Politeknik Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah (POLISAS). A hybrid FA4v1 application was self-developed by the content creator that works on mobile and web technologies. It has been implemented for students taking Financial Accounting 4 in the December 2018 session. This study attempts to evaluate, 1) the perceptions of the students (application user) on the hybrid FA4v1 usage, and 2) It also evaluates the impact of its usage and application in reflecting final examination results for Financial Accounting 4 course A questionnaire was distributed online for users to give their feedback after using the application in their class. It consists of student’s perceptions involving time, tools and costs compared to conventional teaching and learning (TnL) methods. The study showed that more than 80% give their positive feedbacks in using the application. They agreed that the application is easy, efficient, and cost-saving compared to other Teaching and learning methods and will benefit them as an alternative learning resource. The study uses a causal-comparative design which consisted of experimental group (application user) and control group (non-application user) that shows an increase in the number of passes for the course from 23.5% to 52.9%. The study is useful in providing templates for educators to self-develop their own contents in providing a blended learning approach to enhance student’s knowledge. It was also found that the use of IR4.0 technologies such as cloud computing will make such a great impact on the development of Education 4.0. Keywords:
