THE EFFECTIVENESS OF INTERACTIVE MULTIMEDIA COURSEWARE AS INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIUM FOR TEACHING (Published)

This study looked at the comparative analysis of the performance of pupils who were taught multiplication of fractions using interactive multimedia courseware and those who were taught using the traditional teaching model. Visual Basic.Net, Captivate and TechSmith Camtasia Studio v5.0.2 were used to develop the interactive multimedia courseware on multiplication of fractions. The research instrument was in the form of a teacher made test and questionnaire. The test consisted of pre-test and a post-test where the test items difficulty were paralleled. The simple random sampling method was used to select 72 primary five pupils (36 pupils each from the two primary five classes). Frequency, percentages, Chi-square and t-test were used for the Data analysis. The results showed that there was no significant difference in the performance of the experimental group and the control group, but there was significant difference in pupil’s interest in multiplication of fractions in the experimental group and the control group.
