The authors aimed at developing and evaluating a self-learning Computer Instruction Package (CIP) with multimedia. The evaluation focused on the quality of the CIP, learning effectiveness, and students’ satisfaction. The CIP was designed for teaching MSW LOGO Programming to students in Thailand. The sample group consisted of 90 students purposively selected from a public school in Thailand. The CIP development process consisted of five main steps: content analysis; instructional design; courseware developing; implementation; and evaluation. The CIP’s quality was evaluated by three CIP experts. The research results showed that the quality of CIP was at a very good level. Pre and post testing showed that the CIP could help students to improve their learning effectiveness up to 66.57%. The students’ satisfaction was a very high level. The style of narration presented along with images encouraged students’ attention and more easily imagine, understand, and remember concepts.
