In the learning process, there are some elements that have to be noticed in order to make it effective and optimal. The elements are; the objective of the learning process, the type of content, the learning method, the delivery media, and the learning style of the students. The focus of this research was the learning style of the students, in the learning context with interactive multimedia (animation) which was needed to be accommodated, since that one of the characteristics of multimedia

This research aims to investigate the effect of those different two-dimensional learning style (input [visual vs verbal] and understand [sequential vs global]) on the computer based interactive multimedia learning to the learning result. The learning process with multimedia learning was conducted in a class with the research subject is the fourth-semester students of STMIK STIKOM Bali in academic year of 2011/2012. The experimental design used factorial univariate ANOVA 2x2 designs with the size of sample was 79 students divided into three different classes. Based on the result of the analysis, it can be concluded that the students learning result of the learning style for each dimension was equal. It is also the same with the learning result that was combined learning style type of both dimensions. This shows that the interactive multimedia learning developed has been successful to accommodate the students learning style and therefore learning process with multimedia can be concluded as effective and optimal. Keywords Multimedia learning, input learning style dimension, understand learning style dimension, learning result.
