Abstract: The WiMVT system is a web-based science learning environment for secondary school students. In this paper, we describe the theoretical underpinnings that guided the design of WiMVT framework, the components and core features as well as the work flow of WiMVT. We elucidate our development process that supports the development of the system. To examine the functional usability and evaluate its impact on students’ learning, a pilot study was conducted to show the findings with implications for how to improve the functionalities of the existing, briefly present the learning outcomes of lessons with the system, and provide feedback to the researchers, designers and teachers.
