In school, there are many situations where face-To-face classes are not possible, such as student mental status, student physical status, and school locked down by disease outbreak like COVID-19.For such situations, we propose a system of school classes in virtual reality (VR). We record a classroom lesson at school with the students as a 360-degree 3D video and show them as VR. Using this system, students can read letters, numbers and figures written on the blackboard and take notes in a virtual space.In this paper, we report the result of the experiment that students watch classes in VR with the system. As a result, about three-quarters of the students answer that classes in VR feel like a real class. Since this number is better than 2D monitor lessons, we think students will feel more like a real classroom than a regular 2D video with the system.
