Abstract: This study investigated a professor's first attempt at incorporating multimedia technology as an instructional tool in a first-year level Astronomy course at the University of British Columbia. The issues explored were the kinds of planning, organization, and implementation that were undertaken, as well as the effects of the technology on teaching and learning. A qualitative case study research methodology was employed in this investigation. The theoretical frame that informed the study was a holistic world view of education. The analyzed records consist of fieldnotes and videotaped records of the planning stages, observations, tutorial and lecture sessions, and interviews with the instructor and four volunteer students. The emergent issues were categorized into two major themes, practical and pedagogical issues. Issues of convenience, technical knowledge, software and time were four categories identified within the practical theme. Interest and motivation, and concept development were the two categories identified within the pedagogical theme. Recommendations for the successful implementation of multimedia technology as an instructional tool arising from the analysis of these six categories are provided.
