The study centered in developing multimedia-based oral communication worktext for Grade 11 students in General Luna where contents were determined from students’ needs analysis in terms of context, activities, lesson contents, and teaching strategies. It also covered the validation of the acceptability of the material in terms of contents, clarity and technicality, appeal to the target users together with the validation of its effect in speech presentation. The researchers employed qualitative-quantitative method, particularly, the descriptive-evaluative design and quasi-experimental design. This implored purposive sampling with the aid of triangulation method. Needs analysis showed that the presented contexts (3.51), activities (3.51), lesson contents (3.50), and teacher strategies (3.38) were very useful and important among the learners. Multimedia-Based Oral Communication Worktext was developed in three different formats and was strongly accepted in terms of contents (3.82), clarity and technicality (3.87), and appeal to target users (3.98) with overall rating of 3.89. The computed t-value (1.724) was higher than the tabular t-value (1.645) within 0.05 level of significance and 138 degree of freedom which validated the positive effect of the developed material in Grade 11 students’ speech presentation. As part of continuous progress of Philippine Education and involvement of technology in the teaching-learning process, the research proved its uniqueness in integrating technology and worktext to a comprehensive, responsive, and learner-centered oral communication worktext through Microsoft PowerPoint and is recommended for utilization.
