The new argument in the learning-teaching process at the beginning of the current century is the hub of how I can continue to help students to be successful both academically and socially. The possible way this can happen successfully in the classroom is through the use of active class participation. A cross-sectional case study was conducted on the Arba Minch University Nech Sar campus. The study population is second-year Health Informatics students. The aim is to improve classroom participation for specific students. The factor encountered during the classroom conveniently selected the population. Data was collected both qualitatively and quantitatively. And collected descriptive data was checked and processed and analyzed using SPSS while thematic analysis was employed for qualitative data. From the assessment, there were problems related to the department, Classroom arrangement, lack of motivation and confidence, problems of instructional media, and poor knowledge of the field of the study was noted. Discussing with the department, discussing health informatics, fixing seats, using light instructional media, grouping students into different categories were solutions recommended. For this specific classroom, these factors applied, and wonderful improvement was immediately effected.
