The research in progress reviews the interaction of interactive technology with learning theories and applies it to environmental education. The intended goal is raising attention to environmental damage cause by mass tourism. It suggests an educational strategy that incorporates various technologies to increase motivation and achieve longer-term attitudinal change. Although the use of multimedia is limited by the lack of investment for producing software applications for environmental use, expansion of virtual reality and multimedia software may be the closest, and most sustainable, answer to eco-tourism problems. Effectiveness of the use of multimedia applications on potential travelers is tested through pretest and posttest research design.
