The Malaysian Ministry of Education has given adequate opportunity for teachers to acquire knowledge and skills in operating the computer and information technology (C&IT) in order to fully utilised C&IT in the learning and teaching process, as well as, in the daily running of the school. Realising the vision of the Malaysian Ministry of Education, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia's teacher education curriculum was reinvented. New, efficient and cost-effective learning methods were also used to supplement conventional teaching methods. Computer-based learning (CBL) materials were used because many research studies that looked into the effectiveness of CBL on adult learning about IT have proven to be successful. Based on this fact, is it possible to improve Malaysian adult teachers' knowledge of and attitude to IT in education by giving them access to a flexible and user-friendly interactive multimedia (IMM) courseware package - Computer-based Educational Resource and Development In Information Technology (CERDIk IT)?
