This chapter introduces a three-dimensional framework aimed at evaluating multimedia educational software. It argues that the current means of evaluations is highly dispersed and ailed with “no significant result” findings mainly due to the evaluation techniques used and not the systems themselves. The framework proposed combines the two approaches currently followed in three dimensions of evaluations which are: system architecture, educational impact and affective measures. System architecture studies the design of the system itself and the technologies it takes advantage of. Educational impact concerns the differences between student levels prior and following exposure to the system. Affective measures concern student motivation issues when using the system. The goal is to provide a solid framework that is general enough to evaluate all types of multimedia educational systems.
