Learning is the acquisition of knowledge or skills through experiences, studies, or by being taught. With the advent of many innovations, enhancing learning through the use of modern technology is the trend and this includes the use of interactive learning modules. Interactive Learning Modules (ILM’s) is a web application that provides an environment where students interact with the learning activities through watching animation and visual information. The main objective of this study is to design and develop an interactive module for the Ergonomics Laboratory course to assist BSIE - ETEEAP students in their lecture and laboratory activities using ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, Evaluation) as instructional design. The Ergo Courseware comes into three parts: the introduction, laboratory activities, and assessment questions. The introduction presents the discussion of the topic, while the laboratory activities display varieties of learning activities and instructions to better facilitate web or online learning, and the assessment questions exhibit evaluations to assess learning outcomes from the activity. This provides them an easy way to understand ergonomics concepts and theories from the lecture and activities at the laboratory
