In general, students consider that computer material is rather difficult and practicum requires special skills especially if there is no guidance and tutorial from the lecturers directly especially in the current co-19 pandemic, as a result not a few students who are less even less interested in understanding and mastering some theory and basic practice on the material. Therefore, lecturers must have the ability or skills to develop a multimedia practicum and use it in lectures so that learning objectives can be achieved. For example, multimedia practicum based on a Virtual Computer Laboratory (ViLab) that was developed can be used as a support in the learning process and practicum in the computer laboratory of the FIP UNP KTP Department, especially those taking computer practicum courses. This research development uses the Research and Development (R&D) method. Models and procedures developed using the ADDIE model with stages, including: analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation. Based on the results of the development, the results obtained at the same time conclusions that the multimedia Laboratory-based Virtual Laboratory (Vi-Lab) is feasible to be used in learning as a media supporting the practicum This can be seen from the validation percentage of media experts and material experts, namely an average of 94.5% with a very good/very valid product category. Furthermore, it was tested on students (respondents) to find out the practicality level of media use by 88.5% with a very good/very practical category.
