Abstract— K-YAN multimedia instructional strategy is an emerging technology that has been gaining considerable popularity in the educational sector in developed countries in recent years. This form of technology is new in Nigeria, with Borno and Jigawa state being the first to adopt it. This study, therefore examined the effect of K-YAN multimedia instructional strategy on students’ retention in woodwork technology. Area of study was North-East, Nigeria. Population of study was all NCE (T) 2 students in Federal Colleges of Education (T) in North- East, Nigeria with a population of 355 students. Sample size is 150 students; purposeful sampling was used to determine sample size of the study. The study used Quasi-experimental research designs. Three purposes, three research questions and three hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. Woodwork Achievement Test instrument (WWAT) was developed, The instrument was validated by four experts from Modibbo Adama University,Yola, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi, and Federal College of Education (T) Gombe respectively. Data collected were analyzed using mean and standard deviation to answer research questions, while ANCOVA was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The reliability of the instrument (WWAT) was tested at Ramat Polytechnic using 30 students, and a reliability coefficient of 0.89 was obtained. Findings from the study showed an improvement in students’ retention in both groups. However, there was significant difference between the instructional approaches in favour of experimental group. The study concluded that, K-YAN multimedia teaching strategy enhances students’ retention. It was recommended that K-YAN multimedia be encouraged among woodwork technology teachers, students and professional organizations.
