Introduction: The diffusion of technology into the education sector has made drastic changes in the methods used by teachers to teach, communicate and manage information. The current study describes nursing students’ experience with the effectiveness of PowerPoint-based teaching.
Methods: A qualitative research approach was used and purposive sampling was conducted to select fifteen nursing students of the Hormozgan University of Medical Sciences in the Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery who had experienced PowerPoint presentations at least for one semester. Data were collected using semi-structured interviews.
Results: Issues including inappropriate design, inappropriate use, effects of inappropriate use, promoted learning, structured lecture, and attractive content emerged from empirical data.
Conclusion: Given that effectiveness of PowerPoint-based teaching are not related to technology itself but rather to the users of this technology, arranging training teachers are recommended in order to train teach how to use PowerPoint more efficiently.
