Abstract: With the advent of the computer technologies, the learner’s capabilities are increased. An effective system of learning leads to result in the learner’s abilities, development of their competencies and transformation of their interests. Students undergoing undergraduate programmes are learning the subject matter effectively and interacting on content easily with the support of various kinds of computer technologies. If the learners are rightly oriented about the technology in learning, it will certainly be a helping tool in uplifting the learning abilities. Database technology is an emerging technology used in many fields. The researcher developed software using database technology with the objective to find out level of performance in learning among the undergraduate students who are opting physics as main subject. To study the effect of database technology as compared to the conventional methods of learning, the investigator adopted Two group Experimental design where two groups were treated with different learning strategies. A sample of 71 undergraduate students from 4 Arts and Science Colleges in Thanjavur district of Tamilnadu state in India are selected for the study. The present study is an attempt to examine the impact of database technology on learning physics at undergraduate level. The researcher employed experimental method for the study. Data were analyzed using Z-test. Findings reveal that there is a significant difference in the usage of database technology among male and female students, rural and urban students and Tamil and English medium students. This software can be used to store, retrieve and update the selected content from the electronic resources.
