Abstract: One of the major problems in health science education is to understand, comprehend, analyze, apply, and evaluate complex concepts of basic biological sciences such as histology, physiology, anatomy, pharmacology, and clinical skills lab etc. The interactivity nature of multimedia learning can be motivational for active learning. Multimedia instruction provides flexibility for learners to learn individually paced rather than instructor controlled learning. Use of interactive multimedia instruction can be effective to clarify these concepts and mechanisms for the students, and of reusable objects repository can be convenient to meet student education needs of health science program. This study attempts to evaluate the effectiveness of interactive multimedia video on student attitude, engagement, and educational performance.
