	%X Teaching methods include lectures, workshops and
tutorials for the presentation and discussion of ideas have become out
of date; were developed outside the discipline of architecture from
the college of engineering and do not satisfy the architectural
students’ needs and causes them many difficulties in integrating
structure into their design. In an attempt to improve structure
teaching methods, this paper focused upon proposing a supportive
teaching/learning tool using multi-media applications which seeks to
better meet the architecture student’s needs and capabilities and
improve the understanding and application of basic and intermediate
structural engineering and technology principles. Before introducing
the use of multi-media as a supportive teaching tool, a questionnaire
was distributed to third year students of a structural design course
who were selected as a sample to be surveyed forming a sample of 90
cases. The primary aim of the questionnaire was to identify the
students’ learning style and to investigate whether the selected
method of teaching could make the teaching and learning process
more efficient. Students’ reaction on the use of this method was
measured using three key elements indicating that this method is an
appropriate teaching method for the nature of the students and the
course as well.
