Abstract
Virtual reality provides a metaphorical parallel to our real world. The learning of source knowledge can be made easier by its metaphorical embodiment in artificial worlds. Our cognitive is the availability of a large store of organized information with practically unlimited capacity and duration. There are four factors of influencing cognitive load in virtual learning environment: learning tools, learning agents, learning activity and resource architecture .Learning tools are critical to manipulating the needed resources. Utilizing an agent based learner location process can help individual learner process new information. Learning activity as scaffolding has been used to facilitate learners in coping with complex problems. Resource architecture is to help people find and manage information more successfully.
