This data is found in many kinds of forms such as video files, images, graphics, animations, audio and text data.

A good example of digital content is when you sit in front of a computer and watch a video or listen to a song, type and read written information on the computer. The benefit with this kind of data is that unlike the traditional data platforms like data written on paper it can be accessed by a wider audience.
