Analytical thinking is an ability that is really needed in facing the future challenges, including in the industrial era 4.0. The ability to think analytically is important for students to solve problems in a lesson, including the plant structure and function material which is commonly carried out through observation and practicum activities. Limited conditions during the Covid-19 pandemic require mastery of analytical thinking skills in students through innovative learning media. For this reason, the Virtual Reality 360 Interactive Spherical Panorama Slide Presentation (VR360-INSPIRATION) learning media was developed with a 4D research and development model which aims to improve students' analytical thinking skills. Based on the results of the media validation test, the average value was 3.53 in the valid category. The results of the parametric descriptive test and the effectiveness of the media showed that the use of VR360-INSPIRATION media was significantly different from the results of the control group and had high effectiveness in improving students' analytical thinking skills.
