|In this study, the researcher developed a courseware, Perisian Multimedia Elektrokimia (PME) and studied its effectiveness as a learning aid. PME has been designed to be consistent with the form four chemistry syllabus for electrochemistry. The methodology for PME was based on the model designed by Allessi and Trollip (2001). Tutorial was used as the main pedagogical approach, while drill and practice, and simulation complete the scenario. PME was developed systematically based on behaviourism, cognitive and constructivism learning theories. Authorware 6.5 was used as the main programming software, while Macromedia Flash 5 was used to develop the animation elements. A questionaire was administered among the chemistry teachers in the district of Batang Padang secondary schools. They gave positive evaluation on PME. The effectiveness of PME as a learning aid was examined through a quasi experimental study carried out on 60 form four students from a secondary school in the district of Batang Padang, Perak. The t test analysis indicated that there is a significant difference in the score mean achievements in the post test between the group of students using PME and the group using conventional method. Pearson correlation analysis with the value of r = 0.82 indicated that there is a strong and significant relationship between interest of students in the experimental group using PME and their post test score.|
