The pandemic covid-19 outbreak has changed the implementation of face-to-face (FTF) class into online class through distance learning model in many countries including Indonesia. Lecturers in higher education, therefore, are expected to be able to manage the course in order to help the students to deal with the situation. Observing the mobile phone has been part of students’ lives, applying a mobile video dubbing project in teaching philosophy course can be used as an alternative to facilitate students learning the content, technology, and language. This research aimed at describing the Islamic Religion Education (PAI) Department at UIN Mataram students’ perception of the implementation of a mobile video dubbing project in the teaching of philosophy. The study employed mixed-method approach with survey design. To elicit their perception, two instruments were used; they were questionnaire and interview. The result shows that students had positive perception as it enhanced their course content understanding, improved their technology literacy, and empowered their native language accuracy. Furthermore, students believed this project reduced their anxiety as they might fix errors many times in non-FTF project. Then, this study provides insight that the project is not merely suitable for language course but is also applicable to content course.
