This study was conducted among a sample of 115 students who were doing 1st and 2nd years in the Saveetha Dental College and Hospital. The data collected were analyzed. Results: Thirty-three agreed that communicating well with the lecturers helped them to improve their learning. Of 57 2nd year students, 42 agreed to this. Twenty-eight of the 1st year students answered that the team-based learning helped them to retain the learned things easily. Thirty-six of the 1st year students agreed listening to the lecture keenly helped to improve their performance. Most of them preferred the online quizzes and pointed out that visual and auditory materials help in recollecting the lectures.
