This study aims to develop a Stop Motion animation to help teachers enhance their teaching aids in Science and to identify the level of usability of the energy created. Problems in learning and teaching Science at secondary school arise when there are less attractive teaching aids and incompetent Science teachers. In this study, the non-experimental quantitative research design was applied to a sample of 30 Form One students from a secondary school in Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia. Pre-stage and post-stage questionnaires were used to get feedback on the usability of e-SMART as a teaching aid for learning Science. The teaching aid was developed based on ADDIE Model and multimedia elements in a selected topic from the Form One Science textbook. Almost all the respondents (97%) agreed that e-SMART helped them to learn Science better as they could focus, understand, and enjoy the lessons. All the respondents agreed that e-SMART should be used during science classes.
