Online and conventional learning as viewed by students from pharmacy

Author: ELHAM ALSHAMMARI, EMAN ALOTAIBI
Abstract: Introduction: Education has experienced an unparalleled change in the recent years, with a new focus on interactive and more student-centered learning. This had led to discussions on the modalities of learning between online and conventional approaches. Objectives: The objective of the study was to explore students’ perspective of online vs. conventional learning in pharmacy school. Methods: All pharmacy students attending in-campus courses were asked voluntarily to respond to a set of questions adapted from an already published survey and a SWOT analysis was carried out to analyze and provide an in-depth explanation of the results. The questionnaire contained questions measuring the perception of learners. Results: The response rates to the questionnaire were as follows – Junior was 52.05% (38/73) and senior was 40.35% (23/57). Variables in e-learning that didn’t differ between the junior and senior groups were as follows; is easy to use; the operation is stable; provides secure testing; control learning progress; easy to discuss questions with teachers; easy to discuss questions with other students; and easy to share what you learn with the learning community. The findings also showed that the vast majority of the senior students preferred blended learning while close to half of the junior students preferred conventional learning. Conclusion: More students preferred blended learning and perceived it to be more acceptable and of interest. In this regard, a lot of consideration must be given to blended learning to ensure effective learning among pharmacy students.
