Abstract
The computer has witnessed a wide range of applications in virtually all human endeavours. It has also found its way into the classroom, and educators now look in its way as a panacea to prevalent pedagogical challenges. Researches have indicated that appropriate use of the computer for science instruction facilitates teaching and learning. This research work was carried out to develop and validate a computer instructional package on electrochemistry for secondary schools in Nigeria. Several researches have indicated electrochemistry to be one of the topics responsible for students’ poor performance in School Certificate Chemistry examinations in Nigeria. The package was produced in an html format using Macromedia Dreamweaver as the overall platform. Other computer programs utilized during the development process are: CorelDraw suit 12, Microsoft Word 2003, Macromedia Fireworks 8, and Macromedia Flash 8. The validation of the package was carried out in accordance with the recommendations of Dick, Carey, & Carey (2005). In the end, the package found to produce a very good performance level in the students when used for electrochemistry instruction.
