Abstract

Electrochemistry is found to be a difficult topic to learn due to its abstract concepts that involve the macroscopic, microscopic and symbolic representation levels. Research showed that animation and simulation using Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can help students to visualize and hence enhance students' understanding in learning abstract chemistry topics. As a result, Interactive Multimedia Module with Pedagogical Agent (IMMPA) named EC Lab was developed in order to assist students in the learning of the Electrochemistry topic. KemGerly Model (combination of Kemp Model, Gerlach and Ely Model) were combined as instructional design models for the design of IMMPA EC Lab. Pedagogical Agents (PAs) were added in IMMPA EC Lab to facilitate learning in computer-mediated learning environments. The information delivery and the flow of content follow the Needham phases in constructivism theory. It is hoped that the IMMPA EC Lab would be able to assist students in the learning of Electrochemistry in terms of concept understanding and motivation level.
