An important aspect of the merit of traditional audiovisual education is the use of quality instructional materials that utilize visual messages and stories as a main component of the material. This situation does not change a lot even if we would use the term educational media instead of audiovisual materials. The purpose of this paper is to examine the characteristics of three audiovisual materials or instructional media that can be said are 'classic' works and have long lasting value, and to consider the significance of these characteristics for the theory and research of audiovisual education and educational media. The author concluded that we would need to emphasize the aspect of 'art' in our future research.
