The essence of education is to help individuals acquire knowledge, skills and attitude and to use what has been learned to create new knowledge for personal and societal development. This requires the learner to know and to understand the learning materials; and to synthesize, analyze and apply them as well as evaluate them in context-related situations. Education also involves the ability of the learner to use the knowledge acquired in a variety of ways to address specific learning tasks. To be able to do this, the teacher is required to provide instruction in a manner that nurtures creativity. The problem facing teacher is: "How can creative learning be achieved using multimedia application?"
