In this article, the authors will discuss on the utilization of freeware from internet for the development of new approach student-centered learning module (SCLM) for science subjects. Currently, there are many software which can contribute to the field of education. However, those software or assistive technology software in the market are expensive and users have to pay for their licenses. Freeware is defined as any software that can be found in the internet and needing no license fee. Many of these freeware applications can contribute to the education field. In fact the SCLM developed from freeware can enhance students’ understanding of scientific concepts during their learning process. This encourages educators to develop their own SCLM that will allow active learning processes for their students and which also can be used for other methods of teaching methodologies such as blended learning etc. This article further highlights some examples of freeware and possible practical implementation into SCLM in a few selected science topics. We are hopeful that this new approach, along with further effort exploring the application of freeware on other topics will achieve transforming science SCLM in secondary school and university into an entertaining and attractive learning activities.
