This study dealt with the use of interactive e-learning portal for the enrichment of Grade 8 learners’ conceptual understanding in Physics at Luis Palad National High School for the School Year 2014 - 2015. This study utilized experimental method of research employing the use of post-test control group design. An interactive e-learning portal containing some hyperlinked lectures, interactive games, e-quizzes with rubrics and readily available answers, an e-dictionary in Physics, and the simulated demonstrations was developed for Grade 8 learners in Physics. Based on the findings, it was concluded that the interactive e-learning portal can enrich the learners’ conceptual understanding of the students in Grade 8 Science-Physics. Therefore, the use of e-learning portal may be adopted not only in lessons in Physics but also in Biology, Chemistry and Earth Science. However still, further modification of the material may be done by providing add-ons aside from features presented in the current e-learning portal.
