The purpose of this study was to adapt the questionnaire Multimedia Attitude Survey (MAS; Garcia, 2001) to the Greek population in order to evaluate the educational multimedia application "Leonidas" considering the attitudes of ATHENS 2004 team leaders. In addition, the differences among the sex were also investigated. Participants were 232 team leaders, between the ages from 33-44 years old. One hundred twenty two (52.6%) of the participants were men and one hundred ten were women (47.4%). Data was collected using an on-line survey at the end of this study. Results from the factor analysis yielded eight factors accounting for 89.98% of the variance. Reliability analysis indicated a satisfactory internal consistency estimate of reliability for the attitude questionnaire. Independent-samples t test analysis revealed significant differences between the two sex groups, in the case of one factor: "general experience". In the factor above the women reported better results. In conclusion the team leaders' feedback from the questionnaires indicated a general level of satisfaction and contentment with this particular multimedia application. The scale adapted in the present study can be a useful tool for the evaluation of other relative multimedia applications by multimedia developers. Nevertheless, further examination is warranted in order to obtain additional information concerning the difficulties of multimedia experience on employees' attitudes toward multimedia applications.
