Aims: Web-based education is one of active and new methods for promotion of educational quality. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of web-based and traditional teaching methods on midwifery students' knowledge about survey of fetus health.

Methods: In this field-experimental study, 44 midwifery students were divided equally into two groups of web-based (22 students) and face-to-face (22 students). Pre–post test scores were done for both groups, before and after education, then compared within and between groups by Independent and paired T-test.

Results: Based on the findings, there wasn’t any significant differences between web-based and traditional education groups score, but both web-based and face-to-face teaching methods were effective on promotion of students’ knowledge (P<0.02), pre-post test showed both education methods were effective.

Conclusion: Web-based teaching seems to be effective as traditional teaching in education of medical students. With regard to advantages of web-based method, it is recommended to be used in university educational programs.

Keywords: Web-based education, Traditional education, students
