Abstract

This paper aims to answer one of the most common questions asked in Educational Technology is that if the media used can restrict/enhance the teaching approaches or if we can adopt a variety of approaches regardless of media we use. To do this, the question is discussed in the scope of a widely used media, Learning Management System because there are variety of Learning Management Systems which have different capabilities such as Sakai, Blackboard, Intact and Moodle. The author advocates that primarily method, the presentation way of instruction, influence the teaching/learning process not media. On the other hand, it does not mean that media, the way of delivery instruction, is not important; media also support teaching process but you can use alternative media to make the same effect. For that reason, media selection should be done by taking into account several factors such as faculty; learner readiness to use selected media; content; number of learners and instruction time.
