With the rapid advancement of information technology, virtual reality technology has also gradually developed, accompanied by the dramatic growth of virtual reality experiment technology. At present, the space design-oriented virtual experiment teaching method usually contributes to the formation of undesired experiment habits among students, such as caring less about experiment instruments, attaching less importance to the norms of experiment operation, and the lack of awareness of safety precautions. At the same time, virtual experiment may lead to reduced communications in the learning process and fewer opportunities for students to exercise interpersonal skills, thus affecting the teaching effect to a certain extent. On this basis, a teaching method of applying virtual simulation technology to the course of space design was proposed in this study. The analysis of the current development status and characteristics of virtual simulation technology was followed by a detailed description of the use of software in the construction entity and a series of computer-aided teaching and developing processes concerning space, design, function, etc. in the case of space design. Through the survey, it was found that students have more recognition of the new teaching method and their learning efficiency is improved, indicating that this teaching model is significantly better than other traditional teaching methods.
