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.
Conclusion: Online video tutorials were more
effective as compared to the power-point presentations in content
understandability of students and their learning processes.
