The purpose of this study was to explore the students’ satisfaction of VRLs and their continuance intention to experience VRLs in future study. The VRL developed by Unity3D PRO was integrated into an undergraduate course named “Introduction to computer science”. 240 college students from China Three Gorges University took the course and had the virtual and remote laboratory experience for 16 weeks. Students’ satisfaction and continuance intention were investigated by a three-part questionnaire based on the Expectation-Confirmation Model and Flow Theory. The results indicated that the flow experience of students in VRL was at general level while the female students’ perception of flow was higher than the males. Correlation analysis found that the flow experience had an extremely significant correlation with the students’ perceived usefulness, confirmation, satisfaction and continuous intention.
