The article reports on a study that elucidated the extent of the utilisation and benefits of instructional media as
perceived by Omani students. A questionnaire consisting of a list of the commonly available media at schools was deployed. Copies of the questionnaire were distributed to a sample of 970 students drawn randomly from the Muscat area in Oman. The results showed that boards, maps, tables, illustrations and graphs were the most frequent media used
in the teaching of social studies courses as perceived by the students. In terms of the benefits, the results showed that the boards, maps, tables and illustrations were the most useful media. The results also revealed that there was nosignificant difference between the perceptions of female and male students regarding the utilisation of media. However, more female students noted that the benefits they rendered were higher. A comparative analysis between the course levels revealed that the students’ perception of the utilisation and benefits of various media in the preparatory course level was higher than that of secondary course levels. The discussion of the results, in particular pertaining to the provision of the media usage for their benefit in teaching and learning for the Omani students will be discussed and highlighted.
