Students were inquired to express their perceptions & attitudes regarding the online teaching method, using a five point Likert scale. All the data was analyzed on SPSS version 20.

Results: Out of 101, there were 38 males and 63 female students with ages ranged between 22 to 26 years. The mean score for video tutorial was higher than the mean score for Power Point in content understandability. There was a statistical difference in content understandability, effectiveness of teaching technique and attitude towards two teaching techniques (P< 0.05). Students had more positive attitude towards watching an online video than PowerPoint, which implied it was more entertaining, engaging and effective. Discussion was more spontaneous with a video tutorial as compared to Power Point. Students were involved more and enjoyed higher level of interaction.
