This work introduces the concept of Virtual Spaces of Cooperative Experimentation (VSCE) as a generalization of the concept of Virtual Laboratory. A VSCE is a virtual environment that gives Internet oriented experimentation, developed with Virtual Reality techniques, with a Workgroup Model based on Instructional Planned Design. As a study case, there are three experiments developed in a Kinematics' Virtual Laboratory (to carry out the experimental work is required to understand friction or frictionless uniformly accelerated motion) namely: free fall, inclined plane and parabolic shot, with and without friction. The system presented constitutes a platform to solve problems in a cooperative environment which can be improved with new functionalities through the integration of new modules.
