The use of computerized virtual simulations is increasingly common in education and training. Virtual labs provide a wide array of applications, particularly beneficial for schools lacking proper laboratory facilities. This has resulted in several Indonesian schools being unable to conduct practical experiments. As a consequence, the dissemination of biological material and students' comprehension of it have declined, especially in practical skills like testing food materials, crucial for enhancing hard skills. The introduction of a virtual laboratory serves as an effective, efficient, and cost-effective solution, leading to the creation of the 'Biochemistry Laboratory' as an online practicum game to rejuvenate technology-based learning. B-Lab was developed using the Lee and Owens (2004) methodology, including stages of assessment, design, development, implementation, and evaluation. It embraces a student-centered learning approach, illustrating concepts at different levels: symbolic level with reaction equations, macro level by showing material changes before and after reactions through interactive animations, and micro level with molecular motion animations depicting reaction processes. The media validation of B-Lab scored 95%, the material validation 100%, and the practicality test 93%. B-Lab represents a smart solution for various higher education institutions in Indonesia, aligning with the goals of the independent campus initiative.
