It is fundamental that feed-back be given to any communication and the effectiveness be analyzed.Important perception of science communication is that the information is exchanged in order to share the information. Based on effective science communication, present investigation focuses on the research on instructional effectiveness of science teaching apart from traditional methods. Great amount of learning materials through multimedia instructional system can be reused by many individuals, providing that there exists an effective way of finding and disseminating this material. A new concept, a unit of learning materials in a multimedia format, has been developed to ensure that learning materials are thought provoking and reusable replacing the reportedly unacceptable traditional method of teaching in the subjects of science.

The research addresses likelihood and effectiveness of developing learning materials for science education into an adaptive learning system. The research is a systematic approach towards learning facilitation with enhanced enthusiasm, an attempt to establish an agreed method of formal and informal environmental education as well. The investigation analyzes comparison of the students’ perceptions towards difficulty levels experienced during the traditional method of education. We have extended multimedia based learning tool as learning objects to teach students with an individual adaptive learning experience. We have evaluated the tool confirming its effectiveness and acceptability for students learning. The innovative approach is found to strengthen effective exchanges between the pupils and teachers providing leadership and practical know how to the concept of sustainable development. It also corroborates voluntary participation, seldom seen in traditional methods of teaching-learning system. Statistically analyzed data indicates that the innovatively designed multimedia system of instruction is reportedly acceptable, inviting voluntary participation of the pupils, palatable and deepens understanding the concepts to a greater depth, and facilitates distance education and in-service teacher training objectives. The multimedia-learning, a new approach to education has proved to invite voluntary participation.
