Types of Instructional Media Image, Text and Audio
The Human Ear Text (words, numbers, signs, symbols, equations, etc.) The ear consists of three basic parts the outer ear, the middle ear, and the inner ear. Each part of the ear serves a specific purpose in the task of detecting and interpreting sound. ……………………………… ……………………………… ………………………………
The Human Ear Image (drawing, graph, photo, map, etc.)
A simple representation of forms or objects by means of lines, curves and indicators to explain idea or show relationship. Line Drawing
A simple and attractive artwork that helps simplify concept or make an idea or relationship simple and clear. Illustrated Drawing
A group of pictures in a specified sequence that tell a story or illustrate a phenomena with titles and captions. Sequenced Drawing
A complex picture aims to explain the similarities and differences between two or more objects. Comparative Drawing
A map is a simplified depiction of a space or specific region, which highlights relations between objects within that space with navigational aids and appropriate scale. Maps
A poster is a graphic advertisement aims to post a specific message quickly and simply in a public place. Posters
A chart is a visual representation of data ( using lines, bars, pies… ) that displays the relationship among variables, usually cast along x and y axes. Charts
Flowcharts A flowchart is a diagram consisting of a set of specified symbols ( rectangles, diamonds, circle.. ) and connecting arrows that shows step-by-step progression through a procedure, process or system.
Geometrical Figures A two- or three-dimensional drawing illustrates a geometrical concept or relationship using accurate measures.
Screenshots A screenshot is an image captured by the computer to record the visible items on the monitor or another visual output device.
A visual representation captured using ordinary or special optical or digital camera. Photographs

Applications A group of applications programs that is designed to automate general-purpose and specific tasks such as word processing, database management, spreadsheet, attendance, accounting, grade reporting, scheduling and others.
Drill and Practice Drill and practice software provides exercises in which students work example items one at a time and receive feedback on their correctness.
Tutorials A tutorial exposes the learner to material that is believed not to have been previously taught or learned. A tutorial often includes pre-test, post test and drill and practice activities.
Simulations A simulation is a computerized model of real or imagined system designed to teach how a system works and allows learners to create their own sequence for using simulation.
Problem-Solving Problem-solving software is a type of content-free or content-based programs that places emphasis on critical thinking, analysis, logic and reasoning via the presentation of set of data or problematic event.
Teacher Utilities Non-instructional or administrative programs used to prepare instructional materials or organize, store, evaluate and report information on pupils’ achievement and progress.
Multimedia Programs that support the interactive use of text, audio, still images, video and graphics and manipulate them to support learning.
Authoring and Support Tools - For general purposes FrontPage, MX Flash, etc. - For instructional purposes ToolBook Instructor, Authorware, etc.
