This research examines the effectiveness of Transmedia used in Programmed Instruction to teach English to ESL students. Transmedia can be an e-book which has video links, games, or apps attached in the page so that students can interact with various sources while learning (McAdams, 2016). Seeing its benefits, the authors combined Transmedia and Programmed Instruction. The links of videos and games are added into certain pages in the Programmed Instruction book. “What does he look like” – the title of the Programmed Instruction book – introduces Thai students to basic adjective vocabularies such as the words “big” and “small”. Students not only learn new knowledge about these words through pictures and content in each page, but they also have the opportunity to sing a song and play an interactive game about the words big and small. As a result, students can be active learners and can learn by interacting with games and videos. The interesting part for teachers is that students can learn any time and any place. This can also help teachers to prepare students before the lesson begins.
