Method: The samples were 60 elderly in Pranburi district, Prachuapkhirikhan province, selected by simple random sampling. They were assigned to experimental (test) group (interactive multimedia course) and control group (traditional learning materials), 30 participants each. We developed the interactive multimedia course on oral health care for the elderly, learning achievement test, and 3) satisfaction questionnaire. Learning efficiency was tested using the E1/E2 criterion of > 80/80. Test scores at post-learning between the two groups were compared using independent t-test. Results: The interactive multimedia course was efficient with E1/E2 of 82.27/80.33. At post-learning, learning achievement scores in the test group was significantly higher than that in control group (P < 0.001).  Learners were satisfied with the interactive course in a high level.
