Abstract: The aim of the study was to determine the availability, utilization of electronic equipment for learning purposes among medical students. A survey involving 200 students from the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences of Kampala International University-Western Campus was done and a self-administered questionnaire were used to collect data. It was found out that majority of the students (86%) owned at least one electronic equipment and of those 35% owned more than one type of electronic equipment. Of the remaining 24% without personal electronic equipment, 40% preferred to borrow from a friend whereas 24% visited an internet café and 20% combined both options. Only 16% opted for the university E-lab. Many of the students (52%) admitted to use their electronics for learning purposes and course work whereas others (14%) used them for recreation (watching movies, listening to music and playing games). Though a large number (36%) combined most of the purposes few students (12%) gave attention to learning computer basics which are the basic guide for the proper use of electronic equipment. In their personal opinions about electronic equipment use in learning, students gave very positive comments and encouraged their usage. Others expressed how beneficial computers are in learning and also expressed the need for improvement in the computer laboratory services of the university. Therefore the results revealed a fact that many students have electronic equipment of different types which they use for various purposes ranging from academic purposes to recreation and the positivity that they embrace use of electronics in learning. It also revealed a gap in students’ use of the university’s E-lab reduced initiative of learning computer basics which would be fundamental in the proper use of electronics.
