As the concept of open education and distance learning is becoming more and more popular, the need for preparing appropriate and effective media is becoming more and more urgent, for the two cannot be separated from each other. This paper will shed light on the importance of educational media in the distance learning process. It will tackle the different phases the educational media has come through during the last twenty years, comparing each phase features. It will also set several considerations for choosing the appropriate medium for the educational material mentioning the different forms the medium could have. The preparation for the educational medium goes through three stages. In these stages the quality and efficiency of the medium should be taken into consideration, so that the student will get the ultimate benefit of it. Al Quds Open University has its own experience in this field since it was first established. This paper will tackle all these issues ending with a proposal for organizing the distribution of Al Quds Open University educational media.
