This study aims to develop a biology practical video (V-Lab) and a practical manual to assist in teaching and facilitation of form 4 biology subject. The design of the study used is the development design and the model used is the ASSURE model. This study was conducted in a school laboratory and involved students as respondents. As a result, twelve biology practicals has been successfully videotaped. Each video was edited by the inclusion of text, music and shortened to a period of 60 seconds. The V-Lab and practical manuals are validated by experts with a 92% of expert agreement and have a Cronbach’s alpha reliability score of 0.82. The suitability of V-Lab and practical manual were also high (min = 4.25, sp = 0.67) from the students' point of view. The conclusion is that the V-lab and the practical manual are good and suitable for teaching and facilitating biology practical.
