Introduction: The global health crisis caused by the COVID 19 pandemic that began in 2019 has turned higher education around the world into a challenging issue. Therefore, this study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of virtual education on learning of medical students during COVID 19.
Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was performed with a census on 145 medical students through a standard questionnaire derived from clinical education standards. In comparison of effectiveness average, we used t-test and one-way ANOVA tests for two and three level and more respectively. All analyses were performed on STATA‌‌/16.
Results: During COVID 19 pandemic, virtual education had the most effectiveness (26% variance and 7. 41% specificity) in compare to NAVID system (14% variance and 3. 99% specificity) on medical students learning. Effectiveness of virtual method (morning report, virtual conference, NAVID, text review and journal club) regarding to any level of medical students was significant (P-value=0. 002). Comparison of gender variables and educational department did not indicate any difference. With the exception that the text review domain of the internal training group obtained a lower effectiveness score than the infectious group (p-value = 0. 048).
Conclusion: Based on medical students’ comments virtual journal club and NAVID had most and least effectiveness. As a result, students find new content available through up-to-date articles from reputable online and group journals with discussion and exchange more effective than a system set up offline. Therefore, it is recommended to move NAVID to online and interactive approach to make active space accessible for students.
