There is a continuous need to make learning easier for all levels of academic achievement. This study seeks to find an innovative solution to make learning easier and accessible. In the context of making learning process easier an interactive electronic lectures system (IELS) has been designed. IELS is combination of some tools such as recorded lecture, web application, and interactive technologies. This combination presents students’ interactivity with their lectures in a new format. This system specifically designed for undergraduate students which may help them to communicate with their lectures effectively and enhance the learning process. IELS has some features and components that compered versus to the previous studies in lecturing process. IELTS’ storyboard is an initial part of carrying out this study, also it is to anticipate what the potential user needs from the system and also to estimate their likely reaction to it, therefore they are explained. Two cohorts of participations have been involved in this experiment. Thirty two students and four lecturers have been participated. Within the context of this experiment the nature of data which needs to be gathered requires a number of methods of data collection. Students were divided into two groups; group A which is a control group that offered a traditional lecture and group B that is the experimental group which offered the IELS. For comparative between them two way of lecturing; traditional lecture and IELS, both groups have been offered pre-test and post-test. .
