Abstract :

Background: Lectures emphasize learning by listening alone and often students may not be receptive. To overcome this, one can use innovative teaching-learning methods to impart interest and attention and for this animated videos can be used as a supplementary teaching learning tool. Objectives: To study the effectiveness of animated videos during lecture on the academic performance and to analyse whether the use of animated videos during lecturing create an effective learning environment. Materials and Methods: This educational interventional study was conducted at Sree Gokulam Medical College And Research Foundation, Trivandrum. About 134 undergraduate students admitted to first year MBBS course were participated after giving informed consent and were divided in to two groups based on systematic sampling method. Study tools included PPT slides, animated videos and structured questionnaire. The score of post test of the two groups was compared by unpaired ‘t’ test. Feedback obtained from students used for assessing the student’s perceptions about the subject and attitude towards the teaching learning methods used. Results: Students exposed to animated videos during lecture showed a significantly better performance in post test along with a positive change in the attitude towards learning in comparison with students attending lecturing only, while the perception about the subject was same in both groups.
