Abstract

The purpose of this study is to propose a prototype conceptual model for Islamic Sex Education (ISE) in multimedia technology learning, the design and the development of the ISE courseware to be based on cognitive theories.Problems encountered during preliminary investigations show that sex education is a ‘taboo’ and a sensitive issue at every level of the society. However, sex education is important for Muslim parents to educate their children as well as, to provide some guidelines in dealing with sexual deviances and free sex problems. The methodology used in this study, is a combination of the research design proposed by Vaishnavi and Kuechler in 2008 and the Instructional Systems Design. Besides that, the Multimedia Development Processes was alsoused in the initial stages of the research.By employing the prominent elements, a conceptual model of the ISE was developed. It involved three prominent design guidelines, namely; interaction design, information design and presentation design. These guidelines helped develop the ISE courseware. The ISE conceptual model and its courseware prototype are the major contributions of this study, as shown in the two types of evaluation conducted. The learning evaluation revealed that the ISE courseware prototype significantly increased the parents’ knowledge of the said education as measured before and after the use of the prototype, while the reaction evaluation proved that the ISE prototype has the ability to encourage ISE learning among the users. In conclusion,a well-designed and developed ISE courseware is able to improve the users’ knowledge and awareness of such an important subject matter. However, certain limitations do remain, such as the number of respondents involved in this study. Hopefully it can be increased in the future.
