TUBELO, Rodrigo Alves et al. Developing and assessing a virtual learning object with virtual simulation on zinc phosphate cement. Rev. ABENO [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.3, pp. 43-51. ISSN 1679-5954.

This study aimed to develop and assess a virtual learning object (VLO) on the subject of "luting agents";, focusing especially on zinc phosphate cement (ZPC). The methodology and the necessary tools to develop the VLO are described. Dental students (n=29) used this object for 15 days and completed a questionnaire in which they assessed it by using a 4-point scale. Developing the object allowed a virtual simulation of the manipulation of ZPC. The object received positive ratings from the students (4 points, 65.78%; 3 points, 14.85%). The software of choice enabled the combination of all media into one single VLO, which was widely accepted among dental students.
