Distance education can be very effective use of instructional materials with visual, auditory, audiovisual and multimedia content. Visual content can be in the form of text, drawings, pictures, graphics and models, and the like. Auditory facilities are oral presentation or a speech, musical accompaniment, different sounds, etc.. Audiovisual content combine visual and auditory content, usually in the form of television shows, films or videos. Multimedia, combining text, images, sound, animation and video, and playing them before they used very different means, although in recent times for playing multimedia files commonly used multimedia computer, a data storage CD-ROM or the Internet.
