What Is It

In the previous lesson, you have learned that people have different opinions
and perspectives about things. In turn, their opinions are influenced by images and
ideas that they see, hear, read, or view.

Since many types of information can be accessed through viewing, it is

important that you learn how to distinguish the types of viewing materials . Take
note of the following key terms and definitions about viewing and viewing materials.

What is Viewing?

Viewing is the ability to interpret the meaning of visual images (Giorgis,

1999) and construct effective visuals to convey ideas to others. (Valmount, 2003 p.
22, Heinich 1999, p.22)
Because many types of information can be viewed, you need to understand
the meaning of viewing and distinguish common types of viewing materials.

Different Types of Viewing Materials

1. VIDEOS. These refer to recordings of moving visual images made digitally or on

videotape. You can watch videos on TV, at the cinema, on a computer, or even
on your own mobile phone.
2. MOVIES. These refer to recordings of moving pictures that tell a story and
present characters, whether real or imaginary. Movies can now be watched on
screen, on television, and on the phone.
3. VIDEO CLIPS. These are short clips of video or movie, usually part of a longer
recording. The term is also more loosely used to mean any short video less than
the length of a traditional television program.
4. NEWS FLASH. This is a single item of important news that is broadcast
separately and often interrupts other programs.
5. NEWS REPORTS. These refer to various news events and other information that
are presented via television or through the internet.
6. DOCUMENTARIES. These are films or videos examining an event or person
based on facts. Documentaries are TV reports that contain interviews with
people involved in real events.
7. WEBINARS. These are interactive online events where speakers or small groups
of speakers deliver a presentation to a large audience who participates by
submitting questions, responding to polls, and using other available interactive
8. MULTIMEDIA MESSAGES. With the advent of mobile communications devices,
people can already send information using texts, pictures, videos, and audio
messages simultaneously. When the message or content contains all these, what
comes out is a multimedia message.
9. MUSIC VIDEOS. Music videos are short videos that integrate a song with
imagery and are produced for promotional or artistic purposes.
10.LIVE STREAM. This is a broadcast of a live event streamed over the internet.
11.VLOGS – These are also known as video logs, and a form of blog found on the
internet, for which the medium is a video that contains a record of news,
opinions, or events about various subjects.
12.INTERACTIVE SOFTWARE. These are computer programs that require user
interaction through electronically manipulating images to operate. A user can
control the response depending on the actions he or she makes in the program.
Video games are examples of interactive software.
13. INFOMERCIALS – These are TV advertisements which are aimed at educating
the customer about a product.

These different types of viewing materials are now everywhere. When you
watch TV, you will see news and many other TV shows presenting a lot of
information. When you connect to the internet using your phone or a computer,
you will also realize that there is no limit to the information you can get and
download. Viewing materials can enrich what you learn from books or other printed
materials. Also, viewing materials are interactive and entertaining since they are
designed to increase engagement with the audience.
