dc.description.abstract PCF10 Sub-theme: Fostering Lifelong Learning // Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus, a lot has been achieved in the effective dissemination of knowledge through Open and Distance Learning (ODL). However, one area of challenge is the use of Virtual Science laboratories (VSL). Hence, this study has examined the needs and prospects of virtual science laboratories in an ODL institute post-covid-19 era which is based on the theory of connectivism. A case study research design was adopted for this research. A sample size of 560 participants, which represents 30% of the population of Science Education learners, was considered. Data were collected using a structured questionnaire. Results showed that 77% of the respondents showed a positive response toward the need and prospects of VSL in ODL, while 16% had a contrary view. This result indicates that Virtual science laboratories will enhance the learning delivery system, research, and training during and post-pandemic. // Paper ID 4431
