A quasi-experimental design was used to study if teaching normal labor and delivery theory with the assistance of a CD-ROM to undergraduate nursing students was more effective in increasing knowledge than using only traditional lecture and overhead transparencies. Undergraduate baccalaureate nursing students were randomly divided into two groups. Group A was taught normal labor and delivery theory with traditional lecture and overheads; group B was taught the same content with the assistance of a CD-ROM as a visual aid during the 1-hour experimental class. Visual literacy theory was used as the conceptual framework for this study. Each participant completed a 10-question pretest and posttest. The scores from both groups were compared. Findings did not show a significant difference in mean pretest and posttest scores of the two groups.
