This study investigated the effectiveness of virtual laboratories that can be used to simulate real laboratories in science classrooms. Classes of students who utilized virtual laboratories were compared with classes of students who did not. Data were obtained by administering a questionnaire measuring students’ perceptions of the learning environment, attitudes, and achievement; this was complemented by data from interviews with students. No significant differences were found between instructional groups.
