The study used achievement pre & post tests, and Learning Motivation scale as tools for data collection.

The result showed that  there  were statistically significant differences at the level (0.05) between the mean scores of students of the experimental group (a group is taught by VLabs) and control group (a group is taught by conventional method) in the post test in favor of the experimental group, and there were statistically significant differences at the level (0.05) between the mean scores of pre and post test for the students of the experimental group in favor of the post test, and there were statistically significant differences at the level (0.05) in the Learning Motivation scale between the experimental group( taught by VLabs) and control group (taught by conventional method)  for the favor of the experimental group too.
