Modernization and increasing load at the chemistry labs led to development of a new preparation model for undergraduate students. Digital Lab Tutorials (DLT) were prepared for twelve experiments which are carried out in parallel at the analytical chemistry lab. The purpose of this model is to make instruction more efficient, and at the same time improve students’ preparedness. An evaluative study was conducted, students were encouraged to watch the DLTs before labs. Research instruments include attitude questionnaires given to tudents and TAs, lab-observations and students’ lab tests and reports.84% of the students who watched a DLT believe that it contributed to their preparation and success and increased their motivation to participate in the labs. TAs ndicated there were differences between students who watched the DLT and those that did not watch it. We conclude that watching DLT improves the readiness of students and their technical ability in the lab.
