An Interactive and Self-instructional Virtual Chemistry Laboratory

Laiali Almazaydeh, Ismail Younes, Khaled Elleithy


Virtual laboratory is becoming one of the most significant educational technologies due to financial challenges which often required construction of physical laboratories, particularly in educational institutions in developing countries. This paper presents an integrated virtual environment to help individual learners to enhance the practical learning of chemistry fundamentals. Through this environment, the learner will navigate, visualize and simulate a real laboratory environment and its associated processes. The proposed laboratory interface and curriculum were tested on students to measure their satisfaction with the quality of developed laboratory. The results of the evaluation showed a positive response effect on the students’ satisfaction.
