In recent years, the infusion of multimedia into teaching and learning has altered considerably the instructional strategy in our educational institutions and changed the teaching and learning ways. The traditional teacher-centered method of instruction used for decades in our educational system has been modified. In this paper, we focus on designing a course which is oriented towards a constructivist based area by using multimedia as an instructional tool, and where students are active learners, involved in constructing their own knowledge in the learning process and determining how to reach their own learning outcomes. A survey was carried out to ascertain the reactions of students enrolled in an interactive multimedia course in Islamic Azad University, Takestan Branch towards this constructivist based learning mode. The results indicated that these students reacted positively towards this study mode and improved their interpersonal and collaborative learning skills.
