*Fazl Ur Rahman and Sakshi Sood
Introduction: The dynamic use of Internet facilities has shifted the teaching-learning process from traditional classroom teaching to the virtual learning environment. Aim: This quasi-experimental study was done to assess the effectiveness of a web-based teaching program designed on Moodle on “covid-19” for B. Sc. Nursing 4th year students. Settings and Design: Nonequivalent control group pretest posttest experimental design was used. A total of 90 nursing students were selected with total enumerative sampling from Metro college of Health Science and Research, Greater Noida (UP) and Kailash Institute of Nursing and Paramedical Science, Greater Noida (UP). Subjects and Methods: A structured knowledge questionnaire was used to assess the knowledge of students regarding covid-19. Group I, i.e., the experimental group received a web-based teaching program and Group II, i.e., control group received conventional teaching. Structured opinionnaire was used to assess the students’ acceptance toward web-based teaching program. Results: The post mean knowledge score of students in experimental group (24.80 and 23.83 on day 11 and 21) and conventional teaching program (24.4 and 24.1 on day 11 and 21) was higher than their pre intervention knowledge scores in Group I (15.89) and Group II (15.25). Thus, both web-based teaching program and conventional teaching were found equally effective at statistically significant at P < 0.001. More than half of the students (54.31%) strongly agreed that web-based teaching program design on Moodle regarding covid-19 was acceptable. Conclusions: Thus, both methods of teaching were found effective in proving education to students.[Full Text Article]
