Abstract— Teaching the concept of object oriented programming in Java to beginner students may pose to be challenging. As a result, this paper explores how a tutoring online multimedia learning application aided by animated pedagogical agents can aid the learning of Introductory Object Oriented Programming Concept (OOP-Concept) in Java in which the users' satisfactions in operating the developed animated pedagogical agents were examined. An adapted questionnaire was distributed to thirty Semester 2 Computer Science Diploma students of University Technology Mara Sarawak, Malaysia right after the running session. The general findings revealed that most users were satisfied in using multimedia application with the existence of APA agents to learn OOP-Concept. Their satisfactions resulting from this study are able to be a stepping point for developing a better multimedia learning.

Index Terms— Animated pedagogical agents, multimedia application.
