Abstract

Flipped classroom alters the conventional learning environment and brings out innovation and creativity in the teaching-learning process. The flipped classroom has begun to enhance the way the students receive information from their mentors. Audiovisual aids create a virtual classroom at home. Classroom time is more focused on student-centred learning activities, such as concept mapping, process-oriented guided inquiry learning, peer-led team-based learning, game-based learning, critical pedagogy. This improves better understanding of the subject, develop cognitive skills and enhance the conceptual learning of the students. Academic performance of the students exposed to flipped videos integrated with iBooks was evaluated and compared with the traditional learning environment.
