Assoc. Prof. Dr Norhayati Abdul Mukti, Siew Pie Hwa.

The technological applications and especially the use of multimedia courseware have become more common in today's education, stimulating innovative approaches to teaching and learning. The use of interactive storybooks in the primary classroom may facilitate children's reading with minimal teacher intervention. This paper reports on a research project conducted to develop multimedia based interactive storybook for moral and values education using traditional Malay Literature called CITRA. CITRA is a pedagogical tool created for the teaching and learning of good moral values via traditional Malay Literature, which is presented and described herein. The tool, which uses the CD-ROM and computer as the means of dissemination, is didactic software made up of four learning modules. These modules are Storytelling, Reading, Word Enrichment and Mind Test/Games. The design of the tool was made using the experience from other systems and from education and Malay literature specialists. The tool's most important features lie with its user interaction. The principle objective of this project is to create a pedagogical tool that combine on-screen text, graphics, animations, audio and video in an enticing environment that allows the positive images of stories to be projected and can foster good moral sense in children. This project is to be carried out taking advantage of new and emerging information technologies.
