Various methods are adopted to provide instructional material to the learner such as books, audio, videocassettes and multimedia software. It is desirable that the instructional materials have features such as interactivity, feedback, motivation and play a supervisory role like a tutor. An attempt is made to develop an interactive multimedia learning self-instructional material (SIM) for topic “Number system”. The web based instructional technology is used to represent the text, tables, audio etc. with feedback mechanism, supervised practice session using java script and applet. Supervised practice session means, the series of activities are prompted by the computer to be carried out by the learner and system provides response similar to a human tutor. The interactive lesson provides a stimulating environment that can improve the learning process by enhancing retention of subject. The SIM is available in compact disc form. Such media will fulfill the need of learners.
