This paper reports the case study of the design of a web-based multimedia learning system, Eternal Egypt from a pedagogical perspective. An emerging trend in education has been the shift in focus from that of teaching to that of learning. The affordances of technologies, in particular instructional multimedia have aided the movement from teacher-centered, content delivery curricula design models to student-centered, constructivist paradigms of learning. Eternal Egypt is a multimedia information repository that showcases the rich art, history, people, places and religions of Egyptian civilization. Based upon established learning theories, both the strengths and limitations of this educational website will be analyzed to construct a better understanding of the heuristics of multimedia learning systems design.
