There are many software in the field of chemical education. However, it was found, via student questionnaires, that these software have some defects, for example students like to see more realistic graphics rather than the computer graphics, and teachers also like to have a more intractive approach in their classes. We have developed new type CAI software to solve these difficulties by using a new technique which enables us to use different multimedia sources as part of original CAI programs.
These multimedia software will hopefully improve the use of CAI programs in chemical education. In particular, we edited the video movie into a short interval (a few minutes) file and used it in CAI programs as an original and novel method.
