Abstract

The recent development of information and communication technology enriches the life of people. Especailly today's students use these technology tools in their life for their leisure and enjoyment. Their knowledge and skill of these technology tools maybe a unique resource for facilitating their learning, a technology-mediated-learning. This study takes a preliminary step to have a project, in which students are asked to use multimedia tools to understand a engineering equipment. This study tries to understand students' response and their work on using multimedia tool to self-make a multimedia homework. Their work and their response are evaluated. The result shows the value of multimedia tool and positive response, and support the proposal that students may use nowadays multimedia tool to self-learn basic engineering knowledge and skill. This study provides an original view of multimedia tools in teaching and learning, and hopes to stimulate school teachers to provide diverse learning environment to suit the different learning needs of today's students.
