Filmstrip
The FILMSTRIP was a common form of still image instructional multimedia , once commonly used by educators in primary and secondary schools (K-12), overtaken at the end of the 1980s by newer and increasingly lower-cost full-motion videocassettes and later on by DVDs . From the 1940s to 1980s, filmstrips provided an easy and inexpensive alternative to 16 mm educational films, requiring very little storage space and being very quick to rewind for the next use. Filmstrips were large and durable, and rarely needed splicing. They are still used in some areas.

Video Cassette Recorder
A VIDEOCASSETTE RECORDER, VCR, or VIDEO RECORDER is an electromechanical device that records analog audio and analog video from broadcast television or other source on a removable, magnetic tape videocassette , and can play back the recording. Use of a VCR to record a television program to play back at a more convenient time is commonly referred to as timeshifting . VCRs can also play back prerecorded tapes. In the 1980s and 1990s, prerecorded videotapes were widely available for purchase and rental, and blank tapes were sold to make recordings. Most domestic VCRs are equipped with a television broadcast receiver (tuner ) for TV reception, and a programmable clock (timer ) for unattended recording of a television channel from a start time to an end time specified by the user. These features began as simple mechanical counter-based single-event timers, but were later replaced by more flexible multiple-event digital clock timers
