Introduction: Mobile technologies have the potential to enhance conceptual learning of undergraduate students. . Different studies showed that successful use of mobile technologies improves student-s capacity for clinical decision making . The procedure has no extra cost, no need training and more manpower so beneficial for faculties and institutes. Aim of the study: To find out the impact of students learning using animation through mobile technology. Method: A cross-sectional analytic study has been done to the year 1 MBBS student of Asia metropolitan university. A total number of 62 students were divided into two batches. First batch students were taught with diagrams and the flow chart using power point. In the next batch, students were taught with animated embryology CD ROM "Simbryo” of Langmans Medical Embryology book through mobile or tab. Students learning of both classes were tested by 5 SBAQs in posttest respectively in the online platform and the scores of both post-tests were compared. Result: In the class with diagram, 47%, 18%, 25% and 10% students scored 10, 15, 5 and 0 respectively. In the animated class through mobile, 66% 12%, 3%, 11% and 8% student got 15, 20, 25, 10 and 5 respectively. Total marks were 25. Conclusion: The present study showed the students were able to understand better the embryology class by animated teaching in mobile technology than the power point lecture with diagram.
