In recent years computer based instruction has become increasingly popular as a teaching tool. Research in this area questions the reliability of such tools and their ability to transfer knowledge. This introduces a need for proper evaluation methodologies of Multi-Media education software, to be constructed to ensure that they are indeed achieving their purpose. This paper looks at the traditionally followed approaches in the evaluation of this type of software. A demonstration is made of how evaluation can be achieved with the participation of all those involved with using the system. The paper also demonstrates the applicability of this technique to systems by showing a case study of a Data Structures Tutorial Package (DAST).
