The authors introduced a Health and Safety virtual laboratory simulation to a core large first-year science module. Students reported that it had increased understanding, knowledge, motivation, and confidence for actual practical classes. Data show that the virtual laboratory simulation improved student understanding and was still perceived to have been useful one year after completion, providing evidence of a longer-term impact of the simulation on student learning.
