This paper presents an outline on how teachers can use "The Design Process and Animation Techniques to produce animated instructional resources (AIR) which, can be used to facilitate Open Distance Learning in especially Science and Technology Education. A model of the Animated Instructional Resource was developed for the teaching of Human Digestive System, piloted in selected senior secondary schools in Bauchi State Nigeria. The results indicated that, the developed AIR had significant impact in students' learning of the subject matter. AIR was found to be a veritable learning tool for use in and out of classroom, even from remote locations. It was also found to be a good means of stirring teachers' creativity towards developing similar resources, and that this initiative could help boost open distance learning where specialist teachers and high-tech resources are scarce for regular in-class teaching/learning activities.
