This innovation features a virtual Arabic learning tool prototype, which is specifically designed for learners at primary schools in Malaysia. The innovative process begun with the literature analysis of 3 theories based on the work of Nation (2003), Prensky (2001) and Mayer (2001). The design and development of this game-based learning prototype are modelled on the methods and approaches of design and development research (Richey & Klein, 2007) or formerly known as developmental research (Richey, Klein & Nelson, 2004). This method is also known as designed case (Reigeluth & Frick, 1999), design-based research (Reeves, 2006 & Herrington, et. al, 2007), formative research (Nieveen, 2007), and design research (Bannan-Ritland, 2003; Van der Akker,2007). This prototype is designed and developed based on ‘design principles’ adapted from a study by Muhammad Sabri (2011), which was conducted on the design and development of an online Arabic vocabulary learning games prototype among pre-university learners in IIUM. This expanded Arabic virtual learning tool prototype enables teachers and students access to additional Arabic language learning aids, and complementing traditional learning methods.
