Abstract: Virtual reality technology (referred to as VR technology) as a new generation of information technology has brought new opportunities for the development of education industry. It allows students to interact with course content in a virtual environment and solve the problems of interactivity, situation and immersion in traditional classroom. At present, many researchers have achieved fruitful results in the teaching of VR technology. These studies have not only greatly promoted the wide application of VR technology in teaching, but also further improved people's recognition of VR teaching. In order to further promote the application research of VR technology in teaching, this paper reviewed the application of VR technology in teaching, analyzed the advantages and challenges of VR technology in teaching applications. The reasons why it could not be popularized in teaching and how to improve it were summarized in order to prepare for further research in the future.
