The advancement of Information Technology alters various aspects of human life, including learning.

Each measurement was a module that divided into three parts, where each part was presented to the student as one out of three media listed above. Hence we had three media types for each module. Each module took one week, and at the next week we gather their responses through evaluation forms. All modules were completed in six consecutive weeks. After all modules were completed, we analyze their responses and found that our samples responded best to the video with the appearance of the instructor/lecturer, then the slide with audio, and finally text and images.
