Multimedia Resources as Learning Tools
 
Videos, television and computers are effective electronic teaching tools especially in today's context. Our Ministry of Education has introduced the use of Computer Assisted Learning programs in many schools.

The use of videos and television certainly improves the learning process among students. Generally, young children and teenagers learn better and faster ,from the small screen than from the printed word. They absorb more from the screen. It does not matter what educational program they are reading or watching.

Through the Internet and the multiple formats communicated over the web, students have access to new and exciting ways of learning. The computer allows the incorporation of animation, moving pictures and sound into lessons. These multimedia resources present materials which encourage the learner's interaction with the subject matter. Pictures and animations help bring to life principles and content of the subjects they are learning. By so doing, students can take a more active role in their learning.

One of the advantages of using multimedia resources is they convey information quickly and effectively. In this way, they make students more interested in learning. Moreover, they can learn at their own pace and convenience. All they need is a computer or television and some CD-ROMs.

The use of multimedia resources in education is widespread today. Its greatest benefit is that it enables a wide range of resources at the learners' disposal. What is happening is for schools to use a combination of class lessons, texts and multimedia resources during lessons.
