Background and Objective: Multimedia learning as a student-learning method, is one of the phenomena of the modern world that has emerged in the knowledge-based society. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of multimedia teaching patterns on learning and satisfaction level of neurosurgery technology lessons compared to the traditional teaching method in operation room undergraduate students of Hamadan University of Medical Sciences.
Materials and Methods: The present study is a quasi-experimental interventional study that performed on all operation room undergraduate students (n=32) in the para-medical school. The first part of the neuroscience lesson was taught in the traditional way and the second part was taught using multimedia software. In the end, learning and satisfaction level of students in both stages were assessed through written tests and satisfaction questionnaires. Data were analyzed by SPSS v.23 software.
Results: According to the paired t-test, the comparison of students' scores in traditional and multimedia methods showed a significant statistical difference (P= 0.001). Also, according to paired t-test, in comparing the students' satisfaction level with traditional and multimedia methods showed a significant statistical difference (P= 0.004).
Conclusion: Based on the findings, designing educational software can be an effective strategy to enhance learning in the operating room students.
