This study developed an interactive multimedia-based software program for Optics instruction, which was expected to overcome the imperfection of traditional optical labs. The researcher evaluated the effectiveness of the program through an experimental study that compared the learning outcomes of the students who used and did not use the software. The results showed that the program is as effective as the traditional Optics labs. The researcher also investigated the users' perceptions of the experiences with the program. The advantages and challenges were both discussed. More importantly, the study provided valuable recommendations for educators if they see the potential of adopting this program in their instruction.
