Multimedia has been applied in numerous fields with the intention to facilitate learning. The theory of learning with multimedia, introduced by Mayer (2001) has been research globally not only in its origin but also by integrating it with other elements that may enhance learning. Coaching is one of the instructional activities in the constructivist-learning environment that can be applied to support students’ learning. By referring to literature review and previous promising researches results on coaching in facilitating learning across different field, we believed that hybrid digital coaching (HDC) with the appropriate suggested activities through multimedia will be able to help students’ in their learning of ICT subject and improve students’ performance standard. The purpose of this paper is to highlight the potential of integrating a coaching model through multimedia learning material focusing on improving students’ performance standard in learning an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) subject. A preliminary investigation which consists of an early review and interviews were conducted in the early stage of this study to investigate the current situation and problems faced by students in acquiring the knowledge and skills in the subject. Our investigation confirmed that students are facing some challenges in learning the ICT subject. It is within our best intention that this paper would be able to assist future researchers in the development of multimedia learning courseware aiming to facilitate students’ learning and improve their standard performance.
