Integrating Virtual Reality Laboratories (VRLs) in Chemistry Education: A Systematic Literature Review

Thelugu Novah Mary Guruloo, Kamisah Osman


This systematic literature review investigates the importance of integrating Virtual Reality (VR) in chemistry education. It was discovered that only six countries are actively implementing and improving Virtual Reality Laboratories (VRLs) in chemistry education, with the United States (US) being the foremost country in research on VRLs. After 2021, there has been a significant surge in interest in the field, particularly through the Oculus system. Two specific topics that can be augmented by VR learning are laboratory safety and studying atomic and molecular structures. Unity 3D is the most widely used and accessible programming tool, and further studies are necessary to broaden the precise application of VR in chemistry education within the ASEAN and Malaysian settings.
