This study investigates the perceptions of higher education students regarding an interactive DC (Direct Current) motor simulator, shedding light on the evolving landscape of virtual education. By utilizing five aspects of learning dimension, visual elements, software functionality, usability, and portability of a four-point Likert scale questionnaire, the research uncovers a generally positive reception of the simulator among students, who view it as a valuable complement to traditional hands-on laboratories, enabling self-paced learning and offering repeatable experiments in a safe environment. Nevertheless, our research highlights notable concerns, such as challenges related to user interface design and pre-installation software. These findings offer crucial insights into the strengths and limitations of a DC motor simulator in higher education, providing guidance for educators and instructional designers striving to optimize digital learning experiences.


Keywords – Students’ perception, virtual education, higher education, DC motor simulator.
