Abstract

Introduction: Computers and technology are increasingly being used in dental education. E-learning is the use of technologies to enhance knowledge and performance. Dental morphology is basic subject for preclinical and clinical practice. Aim: Our goal was to develop a unique, totally independent, interactive e-learning media module to positively engage dental students and teach foundational knowledge in dental morphology. The aim of this study were to determine the relationship between use of a unique, totally independent, interactive two- and three-dimensional e-learning module and parameters depicting success in learning dental morphology and to measure student perception of the materials’ value in the learning experience. Material, method and results: In the research were included 20 students. Lecture topics included tooth development, terminology, nomenclature, anatomical landmarks, and distinguishing characteristics of each tooth. Each lecture topic had printed specific outlines and objectives given at the time of the lecture. The students were advised to access the tooth atlas for a suggested minimum of eight to ten hours during the module. At the end of the module, a written examination testing relevant didactic knowledge was given to all the students. The examination consisted of twelve multiple-choice questions with three more difficult questions designated as extra credit bonus points of equal value. The responses showed a high rate of acceptance of the independent, interactive learning module components to teach dental morphology and a preference for this format over traditional classroom-based lectures. Conclusion: E-learning strategies using computer-animated graphics to teach human dental morphology have been statistically equivalent to the lecture method. Interactive e-learning module for dental morphology was successful in the delivery of foundational knowledge for the topic. Key words: dental education, e-learning, dental morphology,
