With the rapid development of new energy industry, many universities have launched comprehensive experiments about preparation, characterization, battery assembly and performance testing of lithium-ion battery materials, and have achieved good teaching results. However, due to the limitations of equipment cost and experimental time, it is impossible to meet all experimental needs. We use virtual simulation technology to make students familiar with the basic operation skills of electrochemical experiments and the use of related instruments. Through the virtual experiment about the complete process of lithium-ion batteries including preparation of positive electrode materials, assembly of and performance testing during, we established a new teaching model of online and offline integration and improved the experiment efficiency and success rate in actual operation. At the same time, this model broaden students' vision and cultivate students' practical ability and innovative awareness.

Key words: Lithium ion battery, Cathode material, Lithium iron phosphate, Virtual simulation experiment
