The Architecture of Interactive Multimedia Courseware: An Empirical-Based Approach: Phase Two
Dr. Qais Faryadi

This experimental research was aimed at developing an interactive multimedia courseware to be utilized in Malaysian classrooms. A courseware for interactive instructional design for learning Arabic was designed, incorporating Mayer’s Cognitive Load in Multimedia Learning (Mayer, 2001), Gagne’s Nine Steps of Instructional Events (Gagne, 1985), Keller’s ARCS Model of Motivational Design (Keller, 1988), and ASSURE Model of instructional Design intervention (ASSURE, 1999). The process of developing the software was divided into three phases, namely the conceptual phase, the conventional phase and the engineering phase. This paper discusses the second phase namely; the engineering phase. Furthermore, as this research utilized real life applications of the above models and theories of instructional design, the courseware design thus created and tested in the classroom. This multimedia interactive courseware could act as a prototype for future instructional design developers. This experimental phase discusses the empirical aspects of the finished product in an actual institution setting. Part three of this research will discuss the conventional methods of learning the Arabic language in an actual classroom setting.
