5 Conclusion

In this paper we presented Multimodal Virtual Laboratory which we have developed for high schools. In most of the education institutions there are not so much laboratory facilities due to financial problems. Our developed MMVL is very helpful for educational institutions where students can simulate their chemistry experiments like the real chemistry laboratory and to improve their learning which is very useful for exam score improvement. We evaluated the MMVL through students to find the usefulness and efficiency of the MMVL. Overall evaluations prove that the MMVL is very useful and efficient for chemistry practical learning and for students learning improvement. The user can easily understand and use the system. Compared to previous works of researchers our system is very easy and flexible in using and understanding the environment.

Furthermore we have made our mind to make this system more flexible and realistic for chemistry learning in future.
