The term media often refers of any device that brings information from the source of message to the destination. In our daily life, we can see some examples.

Media are any devices that assist an instructor to transmit to learner facts, skills, attitudes, knowledge and appreciation or additional materials used when using a particular teaching method to make learning easy, as it intends to help both the teacher to teach more reflectively and the learner to grasp the concepts more effectively
