Abstract: This study examined the effects of computer-animated instruction (CAnI) on a group of students’ conceptual change progress by teaching complex, abstract and dynamic (CAD) concepts of electrochemistry at a matriculation centre in Malaysia. A combination of open-ended questionnaires, pre-test and post-test scores was used to analyse the subjects’ conceptual change progress. The CAnI approach was found to have a positive effect on their overall performance in electrochemistry. The CAnI was also found to have positive effects on the students’ conceptual change progress and was an effective alternative instructional method in the understanding of CAD concepts.
