Students were passive during learning. Based on school regulations, teachers can only use two platforms for online learning, namely, Google Class Room and WhatsApp. Teachers were not allowed to upload files that were too large so that it would burden the students, and the types of files that can be sent on the two platforms were also very limited. The aims of the study are to identify students’ need for learning and develop appropriate interactive multimedia-based e-learning to teach reading. This was Research and Development study which employed ADDIE Design. The study was conducted for the tenth-grade students of SMAN 3 Bantul. The result showed the target needs most of the students choose to master English and can read English text with good pronunciation are their goals. The learning needs as determined by the needs analysis are divided into input, planning, methods, the role of the teacher, and environment.
