Abstract—Information and communication technology is increasingly penetrating almost all areas of human life, including education. One form of technology in education is the emergence of virtual laboratories, which are technology-based learning facilities for acquiring practical skills. This research aims to develop Virtual Food Simulation (VIFO), a virtual laboratory learning media, as a proper biology learning medium. This study uses the Research and Development (RND) method with stages according to the Hannafin and Peck model. This research was conducted from April to July 2023. The research test subjects included expert validators (media experts, material experts, and language experts), biology teachers, and 29 students of class XII MIPA. The average result of the due diligence by media experts, material experts, and linguists was 88.6% in the very feasible category, the results of the use test by biology teachers were 100% in the very good category, and the results of the field test by students were 91.3% in the very good category. The conclusion of this study shows that VIFO learning media is very feasible to be used as a learning medium to support biology practicum and enrich learning media in schools, and in its implementation, students give a positive impression of the media.
