Abstract: The teaching and learning of process skills in chemical qualitative analysis is a difficult task for both the teacher and the students due to instructional and external factors. The instructional method employed is usually to demonstrate certain known concepts and provide hands-on laboratory practicals for practice rather than to promote the acquisition of process skills. Factors like time constraint and safety also aggravate this situation and as a result, there is limited learning experience for the students to acquire the process skills of manipulative, observation and inference. As such, this paper concentrates on the pedagogical design and appropriate use of instructional technology in the area of CD-ROM to supplement the learning of process skills. Certain design issues and learning principles in the development of the CD-ROM will be illustrated using instructional storyboard and product developed. Implications for the design and use of such technology will also be discussed.
