This article describes the analysis of the impact of a virtual laboratory on students’ academic performance, improving practical skills, as well as the methodology of using a virtual laboratory. Virtual Lab prepares students for the real lab by offering an integrated virtual environment that helps them improve the experience. With the help of a virtual environment, the student navigates, visualizes and simulates a real laboratory environment and related processes.This article also describes the capabilities of a virtual laboratory, as well as advantages over a traditional laboratory. The use of a virtual laboratory in the course of the theoretical foundations of inorganic chemistry will be considered in the chapter the rate of chemical reaction and the analyzed results obtained. We tested the impact on students’ practical skills using a virtual laboratory interface used in foreign countries. According to the evaluation results, they had a positive effect on student satisfaction. Accordingly, it can be assumed that the virtual environment is a pre-learning tool that can be used before entering a real laboratory. In addition, a virtual laboratory in combination with a real laboratory shows increased efficiency of use.
