The growth of learning courseware which exploits the use of multimedia presents an active learning environment for the slow learners. This method of learning is proven to be an effective tool to be used to educate children with learning disability. This research was carried out to develop a multimedia courseware namely “Komputer Saya”, which was specially designed for the slow learners. This courseware integrates Special Education Syllabus for Learning Disabled with the learning multimedia theme. This paper discusses the framework used for the courseware evaluation and results of the usability evaluation; efficiency, ease of learning and satisfaction attributes. The evaluation conducted was divided into two types; the first evaluation is known as user testing and the second one is heuristic evaluation. Eight slow learners from special education were selected as the participants for the first evaluation while four teachers and one parent were involved in heuristic evaluation. The results of the usability evaluation indicate that “Komputer Saya” can be used as a leaning tool for the slow learners as it meets the requirement for its usability in terms of efficiency, ease of learning and satisfaction.
