Aim and Objective: This study was done to compare the conventional notes and popplet notes for learning pathology among II year BDS students in Saveetha Dental College. Background: New methods are used to improve the standard of education. Pathology is a versatile subject and the concepts are hard to understand. Popplet helps in effective education and teaching. It interprets concepts in a better way, facilitates learning and improves the performance. Materials and Method: A total of 27 students were given conventional notes to learn and test was conducted and assessed. The same students were given popplet notes to learn and test was conducted and assessed. The results were compared to find the efficacy of two methods. Result: 70.3% of the students passed the test when they used conventional notes while 88.8% of the students passed the test when they used popplet notes for learning. Conclusion: Popplet notes simplifies the content, has the ability to insert images and the app can be installed free of cost. Students showed keen interest on using popplet notes than conventional notes. Using popplet notes is more effective than conventional notes.
