Abstract

<p class="Default"><strong>Abstract:</strong> The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of virtual laboratory experiences in physics laboratory attitudes of students. It also aims to determine the views of students’ on virtual laboratory. The study involved 42 students who was divided into two groups (21 experimental, 21 control). Students were randomly assigned to both groups. In the research, the pre-test and post-test control group design was used. The experimental group used the virtual laboratory. On the other hand the control group used physical laboratory. The research data were obtained via the “physics laboratory attitude scale” and semi-structured interviews. The result of this study carried out that virtual laboratory experiences made positive effects on students’ attitudes. In addition, semi-structured interviews were found out that they had positive opinions regarding the virtual physics laboratory experiences.</p><p class="Default"> </p>
