Abstract—The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has
a great impact on pharmacy education. Laboratories needed to
shift from traditional learning to full online-learning mode. As a
result, the flipped online model has been developed as an online
tool to accommodate with this online laboratory requirement.
Laboratory experiences in an online collaborative format were
conducted in pharmaceutical analysis laboratory course in 2020,
and 2021. The students learned in online flipped laboratory can
use digital technology quite well. They have been able to
perform online laboratory effectively. The perspective of
student engagement to collaborative learning was developing
among group working. Besides, students showed strong
positive-attitude to collaborative learning and teamwork.
Nonetheless, in comparison with experiment-practice learning,
students reflected negative perception of online learning. Thus,
virtual facilitation in pre-class learning material is a key of
improvement to strengthen students’ engagement and improve
