Abstract

This paper will present a study in which we examined two different methods of multimedia courseware design ?structure-based and function-based methods ?to determine whether the design methods make difference in the quality of the courseware in terms of screen design, navigation, interactivity, creativity, and content; and whether the sequence in which students learned the two methods influence the quality of their courseware design. The sample of the study was 60 in-service teacher education students. Differences were found in the qualities between multimedia courseware designed with structure-based method and that with function-based method. The findings also suggest that the sequence in which students learned the two methods does influence the quality of their courseware design.
