This research aimed at determining the validity of interactive multimedia on the nerve system material that had been developed and finding out the students’ response to the interactive multimedia. This was a developmental research (Research and Development) followed by a small group test on the eleventh-grade students of SMAN Ambulu totaling 9 students. The students were selected based on their ability level; 3 students with high ability level, 3 students with moderate ability level and 3 students with low ability level.
