The purposes of this study were to develop and test computer-mediated lesson efficiency in relation to laminectomy knowledge for nursing students. The investigator developed the computer-mediated lessons utilizing 7 steps: (1) preparation; (2) instruction design, based on the concept of the interaction between the learner and the lesson; (3) development of a flowchart lesson; 4) storyboard creation;(5) program lesson development, using Adobe Captivate version 4.0, including tutorial, simulation, and test formats; (6) supporting materials production; and (7) evaluation and revision. After that, it was tried out by individuals and groups of nursing students. The contents of the computer-mediated lessons were composed of principle of rehabilitation and a video of rehabilitation for patient undergone laminectomy. After that, efficiency was used with 30 third-year nursing students from the Faculty of Nursing, Thammasat University. The process/outcome efficiency was 85/87, which achieved 80/80 efficiency. Subjects rated the computer-mediated lessons as good and very good regarding the information, presentation, applicability, and instruction. This result is suggested that computer-mediated lessons can reduce learning time, can be accessed at any time, and are cost-effective. Computer-mediated lessons are also regarded as one of the major functions of the instructor to cause the development of teaching in Thailand, a developing country that is about to step into the Asean Economics Community (AEC).
