In distance learning both the instructor and students are separated, thus learning material plays a vital role in filing the gap which is not only a source of disseminating knowledge and information but also for motivating the learner to learn independently. As an open and distance learning institution, Open University Malaysia (OUM) provided a suite of learning materials for its learners which includes print and digital material. i-Tutorial is one of the digital learning material that is used in some of the courses in the university. It is a visual clip of a lecturer presenting content by using pen device on power point slides, digital movie/pictures or digital tablet. This research aims to investigate the perceived effectiveness of i-Tutorial by evaluating four major aspects of multimedia materials, they are: design, elements, instructional messages, and interactivity. A well-designed media-rich i-Tutorial will not only enhance learning and translate into better learning outcomes but provides a stimulating environment for learning and retaining information delivered. The research data was collected via an online survey and a focus group. The findings from the survey and discussion indicated that i-Tutorial was well received by the students for all the four multimedia factors and also regarded supportive in their learning.
