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.
