ABSTRACT This paper first reviews applications of multimedia in engineering education, especially in laboratory learning. It then illustrates a model and accreditation criteria adopted for developing a specific set of nanotechnology laboratory courseware and reports the design-based research approach used in designing and developing the e-learning material. According to findings of the present study, the courseware developed satisfies the “e-Learning Courseware Quality Checklist version 3.0” in most dimensions. This paper concludes by presenting the researchers' findings and problems encountered in this ongoing study, and it describes a future study plan that will include the student input regarding these laboratories. This study should contribute to the innovative use of technology in facilitating engineering laboratory learning and in instructional design practice and research.
