This study investigated the effect of electronic interactive board on computer science education students’ academic achievement in web development in tertiary institutions in Bayelsa State. Two research questions guided the study while three hypotheses were tested at .05 level of significance. Quasi experimental design was adopted for the study. The population comprised 136 second year students. There was no sampling because the population was manageable. The instrument for data collection was Web Development Achievement Test (WDAT). The instrument was validated by three research experts and the internal consistency of .82 was determined using Kuder-Richardson Formula (K-R20). The experiment involved the use of electronic interactive board to teach web development and it lasted for two weeks. Mean and standard deviation scores were used in answering the research questions while in testing the hypotheses, Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used. The findings of the study revealed that the use of electronic interactive board enhances students’ academic achievement in web development more than the lecture method. There was an improved academic achievement among the male and female undergraduates in the experimental group when taught with electronic interactive board. Based on the findings, the study recommended that Tertiary institutions in Bayelsa State should consider integrating electronic interactive boards into their web development courses.
