Abstract

The creation of scientific virtual experiments (VSEs) can transform e-learning materials more exciting, improving student performance and motivation. The aim of this paper is to present a scientific virtual experiment (VSE) on the pendulum created following a model that combines the Kolb’s approach and the Theory of Brosseau. This model defines the procedure for building a VSE learning activity by defining a set of phases which are mapped to specific learning/evaluation: Presentation, Practical Situation, Abstract Situation and Institutionalization. The realized VSE can be used as a learning object or in a customized course created with the platform of e-learning IWT, when, following the student preference, the learning object of type VSE is the more suitable to teach the underling concepts.
