CBL environment is expected to motivate learners, educators wonder how to ensure the learning process is at its optimum level.
This product consists of instructional materials combined with technology approaches to enhance computer-based learning. The software focuses on the theoretical and practical of interior design that can help visual art teachers to teach. Multimedia courseware is a platform for all to communicate, share and explore knowledge. Using such a courseware will be an added benefit during the learning process. Although the integration of such elements within a CBL environment is expected to motivate learners, educators wonder how to ensure the learning process is at its optimum level. There is little technology exploited in the teaching of art other than the conventional method of chalk and talk and demonstration. Thus the presentation in this software, which is structured, is expected to help learners go through the contents and to respond positively to the activities. It employs a non-linear, problem-based, student-centered, constructivist approach to assist learning. The uniqueness of this software is the used of multiple intelligence approaches to assist learning. The used of 6 elements of multimedia, Dale Cone of Learning, Instructional Model and Strategies will make this courseware more meaningful and valuable to the users. This multimedia course is highly potential and valuable in Malaysian market based on schools system offered visual art subject. In terms of resources, I believe this courseware not only gives a content knowledge but also pedagogical aspect was delivered well in this package.

Photo Therapy is about photography-as-communication rather than photography-as-art, no prior experience with cameras or the photographic arts is required for effective therapeutic use.
How Therapists Use Photos to Help People Heal
Most people keep photographs around, without ever pausing to really think about why. But, because personal snapshots permanently record important daily moments (and the associated emotions unconsciously embedded within these), they can serve as natural bridges for accessing, exploring, and communicating about feelings and memories (including deeply-buried or long-forgotten ones), along with any psycho therapeutic issues these bring to light. Therapists find that their clients’ photos frequently serve as tangible symbolic self-constructs and metaphoric transitional objects that silently offer inner “in-sight” in ways that word alone cannot as fully represent or deconstruction.
