Materials and Methods: In an educational trial study, nursing students in sixth semesters, were randomly selected and placed in two groups electronic learning and teaching based on lecture, each of the groups include 35 students. The amount of knowledge was evaluated by pre-test. Teaching the heart dysrhythmias was performed by lecture in one group, and by weblog in another group.After one week, the amount of knowledge was campared with post-test. The tool was used for collecting the information was researchers' self-made questionnaire. Data were analysed by Software, descriptive and inferential statistics (paired t-test and independent t-test) To compare the mean of students's knowledge scores in pre and post-teaching, it was used paired t-test within each group, and indipendant t-test among groups.

Results: Results showed weak awareness before teaching and teaching had significant effect on increasing the knowledge of heart dysrhythmias after the intervention of each group (p=0.0001 for both electronical and lecture group). There was not any significant difference between the average of two groups (pre-test: p=0.06, post-test, p=0.21).
