Digital multimedia,together with CD-ROM technology enables production of interactive textbooks on a personal computer. It enables learners to actively engage in the learning process as it can provide course content,active learning opportunities and instructional technology to users. The focus of this paper is the development of a CD-based Kadazandusun language using multimedia technology based on standard 5 Kadazandusun's activity book. Kadazandusun is the largest indigenous group in Sabah. Kadazandusun language is listed as one of the endangered language in the world. Nonetheless,it is important to view the use of ICTs in education (particularly learning Kadazandusun) as an assisting tool and as a medium to enhance teaching and learning processes of the language.
