This paper presents first-hand experience with the development and implementation of interactive multimedia instructional materials for an engineering course at Virginia Tech. The interactive software was developed from a National Science Foundation grant aimed at enhancing the undergraduate engineering curriculum through increased emphasis on design and economic principles.

The purpose of this paper is :

(1) To examine the application of innovative information technology to support theeffective dissemination of learning materials

(2) To report on a survey in which the benefits of multimedia-based support materials are assessed

To formulate useful guidelines for creating interactive multimedia-based materials for classroom instruction
