Abstract

Over the last years, there has been an increase in online educational resources and me-dia device use for educational purposes in veterinary settings. However, an overall analysis ofthese studies providing measurements of the use of learning resources and media devices could beparticularly useful for veterinary teachers. The evolution of technology, coupled with the adventof pandemic-related restrictions in person lessons, has made it imperative that educators considerhow students may access educational material, as well as what type of educational material may beavailable to them. Databases including PubMed, Scopus, CAB Abstracts, and Web of Sciences weresearched for relevant studies from January 2012 to June 2022. A mini-meta-analysis for proportionswas performed using RStudio. Results highlight a high use of portable media devices with differencesamong countries, continued good use of traditional textbooks, moderate use of online tools, and lowuse of research papers. The results suggest that despite living in a technologically advanced world,veterinary students have attitudes towards digital resources that cannot be assumed.
