The purpose of this study was to incorporate a virtual lab in physics experiment courses, enabling students to immerse themselves in the experimental process, thereby explore the effects on their learning attitude and reflections on the implementation. The task of experiment was Static Equilibrium. 38 senior high school students from an 11th grade class in northern Taiwan were participated. The results indicated that “virtual lab” facilitated improving significantly the learning attitude of high school students in physics experiment courses (p<.05). Students felted very positive toward the CVLab for the reasons that it was easy to operate, and fun to discuss among classmates, allowed them to explore individually in the class and by all means to have them better understand the phenomenon and principles of Static Equilibrium.
