This study seeks to gather views of teacher-learner insight into computer-assisted teaching and learning with the acceptance of PowerPoint presentation which can, in turn, enhance science content visualization. This study uses the descriptive research design as indicated in the research methodology. Views from students on the suitability of both PowerPoint presentation and traditional teaching approach referred to as expository teaching approach in this study were collected through designed questionnaires and students were given statements and were asked to assign the degree of righteousness by a five-point Likert scale answer. On the other hand, teachers’ views were collected through an online designed survey based on the five-point Likert scale answers style. From the total study population of 80 including 63 secondary school advanced level science students of Institut Paroissial de Mukarange and 17 science teachers across the country. Based on research participants’ views analyzed by using the statistical package for social sciences version 21.0, it could be praiseworthy enough to take the advantage of computer-assisted instruction particularly, PowerPoint presentation as the promising tool to enhance science content visualization that could consequently enhance students’ retention ability, clarification and alleviate the level of misconception in science concepts and principles.
