In this technologically driven world, the use of digital contents for creating, storing, managing and sharing information has been a norm among teachers and students, witnessing a transformation that allows both parties to share their experiences in a more natural and compelling form using the key elements of multimedia (pictures, audios, videos, and word processed text) in an interactive manner. Drawing from these platform, it is possible to make learning occurs through interaction with rich learning environments using online or standalone interactive multimedia and hypermedia thus making a significant progress in information management in educational setting. Consequently, the interactivity embedded in these technologies will build a new layer of competency; encourage the growth of learner responsibility, commitment, initiative, decision-making, intentional learning and ownership over the acquired knowledge, thus making the learner an active processor of information. This paper discusses the basic elements of interactive multimedia and hypermedia for enhancing information management in educational settings, the structure of interactive multimedia and hypermedia instruction, the design principles of interactive multimedia and hypermedia instruction. Finally, the paper portrayed the potential benefits to teachers and students.
