The Architecture of Interactive Multimedia Courseware: A Conceptual and an Empirical-Based Design Process: Phase One
Dr. Qais Faryadi

This research was aimed at designing an effective interactive multimedia courseware to be utilized in Malaysian classrooms. A courseware for interactive instructional design for learning Arabic (Bahasa Arab Interaktif Kurikulum (BAIK) was developed, 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 two phases, namely the conceptual phase and the engineering phase. This paper discusses the first phase namely; the conceptual and theoretical approaches. These approaches are divided further into four parts, such as, the conceptual approach, the model approach, and the design and development process. Furthermore, as this research utilized real life applications of these models and theories of instructional design, the instructional design thus created could act as a prototype for future instructional design developers. Phase two of this research will discuss the empirical aspects of the finished product in an actual institution setting.
