The current implementation of traditional hands-on laboratory work is limited to the physical constraints of time and space. Other concerns include dequate equipment and safety hazard of laboratory work are also deterring the effectiveness of the experiments. Online experiment can be an alternative approach in implementing laboratory experiments where students can participate interactively and experience physics theories just as they are taught by textbook, lectures and labs. This paper presents a virtual physics experiment as an alternative approach in teaching and learning. The development of an online experiment has taken into consideration of scientific discovery learning approach that will provide students with exploratory learning environment. Through software development life cycle model and prototype approach, t online experiment will be developed using Easy Java Simulation, Java Development Kit and Photoshop. Prototyping development methodology has also been adapted in the development of the system Functional and integration testing has been conducted and result will be presented.
