That is, the materials or equipments required to use all the media will be in this classroom. If there are electricity connection, laptop / computer, internet connection, projector, projector screen / white color walls, sound system, then it can be called Multimedia Classroom. Teachers have to manage classes with respect to the content of multimedia functions. Multimedia content refers to where the teaching learning is enriched using audio, video, visual clips.

Using a multimedia content does not require the use of a lesson plan to take classes. The lessons can be presented in terms of reality. Abstract topics can be presented with realistic views. The difficult issues can be easily presented. The learning of the students in the classroom set up in mind permanently. At the same time there are opportunities to use different teaching aids (materials). All students can be included with learning process. Teaching learning activities (classroom performance) runs with delightful attitudes. Variety of lessons can be brought to the students.
There is a chance to show the same information repeatedly. The latest information and explanation can be presented in the classroom. The same materials can be used in different classes.
