Consequently, education shouldered the responsibility Of preparing the computer literate individual who is able to deal with computer so as to be able to go on in living in the IT society and . acquiring the developing side of human civilization This Study is just an attempt to prepare a program for the learned in computer literacy through acquiring them the minimum main computer knowledge and skills to be able to computer literate according to computer sciences and education specialists and experts opinions and by using Interactive Multimedia for its ability to arouse learner’s .motive , attracting his attention and developing his attitudes for using computer : Statement Of The Problem In Egypt and the Arab World, Although computer entered all areas of life ,the number of computer and internet users is still limited compared with the population number , including he learned. This doesn’t go with the age of IT revolution. it is noticed that the intermediate certificate holder plus the university graduates are computer illiterate and still some feel scared and find difficulty ,dealing with computer During a training course, in collaboration with the Ministry of Information and Communication, sited in . -: The South Valley University, the Studyer noticed the following : Questions Of The Study -: The Study seeks answer to the following questions What is the suggested image of building a Program for computer literacy by using -1 ?Interactive multimedia ?What is the effect of using the suggested program in computer literacy -2 What effect of the suggested program on developing the attitudes towards using -3 ? computer . : Tools Of The Study The study depended on the preparation and design of the following Tools ) Prepared : ) By The Researcher . A courseware prepared based on Interactive multimedia in learning computer -1 . the courseware user guide -2 . An Electronically prepared achievement test in computer literacy -3 Attitude scale towards using computer -4 . An observation sheet for the learner‘s some main computer skills performance -5

The form of The suggested courseware evaluation form for specialisties and-6 .experts .The suggested courseware learner evaluation form -7 : Procedures Of The Study -: Procedures can be summed up in two cases : The Theoritical Framework -: That focused on : First The interactive multimedia : concept /characteristics /Instructional strategies / . Instructional necessities / the production needs / the use hindrances Second Computer literacy and the development Attitude towards using computer : The Experimental Framework : First -: Building a list for objectives and subjects for computer literacy Program . Choosing the objective from the list -1 . Assigning the resources of the list -2 Derivation the resources to reach a primary list with the objectives and the -3 . suggested program content Controlling the primary list through presenting the objectives list and the primary -4 . contents to the juries Preparing the final image of the objectives and the subjects of the suggested -5 . program : Secondly Building a courseware by using interactive multimedia : Thirdly -: Preparing the evaluation tools as . An Electronically prepared achievement test in computer literacy -1 . Attitude scale towards using computer -2 . An observation sheet for the learner‘s some main computer skills performance-3 : Fourthly -: The Experimental study it includes . choosing the Study group and assigning the work plan -1 Applying the achievement test , the observation sheet for the learner‘s some main -2 computer skills performance and Attitude scale towards using computer on the Study . )group )The pre-application . Teaching the suggested program to the Study group -3 The reapplication of the achievement test , the observation sheet and Attitude scale-4 . )towards using computer on the Study group ) the post-application : Results Of The Study -;For answering the first question that stated the fllowing What is the suggested image of building a Program for computer literacy by using ? Interactive multimedia -: The building up of the image according to four steps . The stage of educational preparation -1 . The stage of preparing and equipment -2 . The stage of authoring and coursewaring -3 .The stage of trying and developing -4 -:For answering the second question that stated the following ?What is the effect of using the suggested program in computer literacy

The results of the pre/post application for the study tools were sited the achievement test and the observation sheet then the results were developed statistically and the -: results came as follow : For The knowledge side There are significant differences at )0.01( level between obtained in the mean scores of the Study group in the pre-test and post-test in the achievement test for the post application test as the Value of T=20,60 and the Effect Size )0,97( that denotes that these differences weren't accidental but were the effect of the suggested program . )whereas the modifier acquistion ratio was )1,27 Consequently it can be said that the suggested program is characterised by effectiveness as for acquiring the Study group some main computer information and . knowledge that it included For the skill side There are significant differences at )0.01( level between obtained in the mean scores of the Study group in the pre/ post application in the observation sheet for the post application as the Value of T=21,92 the Effect Size )0,97( that denotes that these differences weren't accidental but were the effect of the suggested program whereas . )the modifier acquistion ratio was )1,24 Consequently it can be said that the suggested program is characterised by effectiveness as for acquiring the Study group some main computer skills that it .included -:For answering the third question that stated the following What effect of the suggested program on developing the attitudes towards using ? computer -:The results were There are significant differences at )0.01( level between obtained in the mean -1 scores of the Study group in the pre/ post application in the Attitude scale towards using computer for the post application as the Value of T=35.83 the Effect Size )0,98( that denotes that these differences weren't accidental but were the effect of the . )suggested program whereas the modifier acquistion ratio was )1,21 Consequently it can be said that the suggested program is characterised by .effectiveness as for the development of the attitude towards use of computer There aren’t significant differences between female and male in the pre/post -2 appliction in the Attitude scale towards using computer and their attitudes of both sex . towards using computer were positive ]CENTER __________________
