A developed interactive courseware in the application of integration was adapted as a technological innovation in tutoring engineering students in Calculus. The courseware is composed of 6 modules where the topic are part of the course content in Engineering Math-Calculus, a course offered in the Foundation Programme of Universiti Teknologi Petronas. The objective of this paper is to discuss the use of interactive courseware as an alternative tool for tutoring the students to facilitate the understanding of concepts in areas and volumes. The examples in the modules help students visualize the problems a strategy for them to formulate the needed expression for solving. Fifty students participated in the study and divided into two groups the control and the experimental group. The results showed that the students in the experimental group performed as well as the students in the control group. This indicates that the interactive courseware is a useful tutoring tool to enhance student's learning the application of integration and it can be used for independent study.
