Virtual Reality (VR) technologies bring new opportunities and challenges to teaching and learning. Virtual Reality Learning Environment (VRLE), a VR-based interactive environment incorporating instructional design for educational purposes, nowadays draws great attention of interdisciplinary scholars. In this paper, we first introduce the current status of VRLE-based research studies from various perspectives and then summarise the on-going challenges based on previous research studies and our own experience in this research area.
