Abstract: Multimedia which characterises the current trend in education can be used to overcome shortcomings encountered in teaching and learning. However, some multimedia elements that have been applied in interactive software cannot provide an exciting and motivating learning environment. This study describes the development and the evaluation of interactive Multimedia Software that can serve as a tutorial for the Smart Solat Module in the j-QAF curriculum. This software was developed in accordance with the syllabus of the year one j-QAF curriculum, issued by the Ministry of Education. The software was developed on the basis of the ADDIE Design Model and the Al-Rassam Program was used to write the Jawi/Arabic text. The research questions addressed in this study were to develop and assess whether the software can meet the j-QAF curriculum to apply the multimedia elements by taking into account the concept of computer-aided teaching and learning namely the theory and strategies of learning and to evaluate the effectiveness in terms of customer satisfaction. The evaluation of the Multimedia Software was formative and summative using questionnaire, administered to three experts and 30 years one students. The findings showed that this Multimedia Software can help students understand the curriculum (j-QAF Smart Solat Module) more easily and clearly.
