ABSTRACT:

Aim

To determine the availabiltity, utilization of electronic equipment for learning purpsoses among

medical students.

Methods

In a survey involving 200 students from the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences of Kampala

International University-Western Campus was done and a self-administered questionnaire was

used to collect data.

Results:

It was found that majority of the students(86%) owned at least one electronic equipment and of

those 35% owned more than one type of electronic equipment. Of the remaining 24% without

personal electronic equipment, 40% preferred to borrow from a friend whereas 24% visited an

internet café and 20% combined both options. Only 16% opted for the university E-lab. Many of

the students (52%) admitted to use their electronics for learning purposes and course work

whereas others (14%) used them for recreation (watching movies, listening to music and playing

games). Though a large number(36%) combined most of the purposes few students (12%) gave

attention to learning computer basics which are the basic guide for the proper use of electronic

equipment. In the their personal opinions about electronic equipment use in learning, students

gave very positive comments and encouraged their use. Others expressed how beneficial

computers are in learning and also expressed the need for improvement in the computer

laboratory services of the university.

Conclusion:

Therefore the results revealed a fact that many students have electronic equipment of different

types which they use for various purposes ranging from academic purposes to recreation and

the positivity that they embrace use of electronics in learning.

It also revealed a gap in students’ use of the university’s E-lab reduced initiative of learning

computer basics which would be fundamental in the proper use of electronics.

Recommendations:

The university gets to know that most students have personal means of assessing electronic

services therefore help them put them to good use.

University initiates programs that will teach the students computer basics like periodical

seminars since most students do not go back to the computer laboratory once their lessons are

done in computer laboratories.

The university comes up with programs like electronic results, notes, and dissertations and other

research programs, video conferences and correspondences to open up the students to the world

wide networks for better exchange of educational ideas.
