Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the extent to which students enrolled in B.Pharm course benefit from the use of modern technology based teaching tools such as Microsoft PowerPoint.We found more support and encouragement for the traditional teaching tool chalk and talk as compared to the Power Point which is nowadays extensively used in many of our Pharmacy colleges. The findings of our study supported the view that technology intensive teaching tools like PowerPoint do not necessarily imply enhanced student active participation or create more interest in the subject in undergraduate classes. On the contrary, both of these goals appear to be better served by chalk and talk which is clearly evident from our study where more than 80% of our study respondents (B.Pharm students) emphasized the value of chalk and talk and declared it as the more effective and useful teaching tool in their learning experience compared to PowerPoint and recommended it for teaching.
