Computer and information technology can be used so that students can individually, in groups, or by electronic demonstration experiment and draw conclusion for the required activities in an electronic form in what is now called "e-lab". It enables students to conduct experiments more flexibly and in an interactive way using multimedia. It helps them to achieve electronic practical training, skills, and tendencies. This paper focuses on describing the design and procedures of a nation-wide research project financed by The Research Council and conducted to measure the effectiveness of the e-lab on Omani students' acquisition of practical abilities and skills. The research project, in particular, examines the effectiveness of the e-lab in science teaching, the skills acquisition, and basic education students' appreciation of classroom environment. It also aims to know the students' attitudes towards the use of e-Lab technology and its employment. The paper will draw prospective recommendations for the field work derived from literary evidence.
