Abstract. This paper highlights the effect of visual of a multimedia courseware,
Black Cat Courseware (BC-C), developed for learning literature at a preuniversity
level in University Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP). The contents of the
courseware are based on a Black Cat story which is covered in an English course
at the university. The objective of this paper is to evaluate the usability and effectiveness
of BC-C. A total of sixty foundation students were involved in the study.
Quasi-experimental design was employed, forming two groups: experimental and
control groups. The experimental group had to interact with BC-C as part of the
learning activities while the control group used the conventional learning methods.
The results indicate that the experimental group achieved a statistically significant
compared to the control group in understanding the Black Cat story. The
study result also proves that the effect of visual increases the students’ performances
in literature learning at a pre-university level.
