This following paper outlines the development of a multi-media educational software package as an alternative pedagogy to the traditional approaches in teaching structural and building technology to architecture students. The software described is entitled, "Interactive Structures Learning Environment" (ISLE) and is a multi-media program that utilizes a wide range of high-quality graphics, computer-generated models, animations, virtual reality models and audio narration to demonstrate the principles and applications of structural analysis. The development of the educational software aims to provide structural analysis instruction that is better suited to the skills, disposition, and learning needs of architecture students.
