As an important component of natural science education, popular palaeontology education
developed rapidly worldwide. Traditional offline public lectures, guide tours and peripheral products represent the main implementations. With the appearance of new technologies in recent years, new interactive teaching methods have emerged. Especially since the outbreak of COVID-19 at the end of 2019, traditional offline methods are temporarily shut down in China. Digital media technology-based new interactive online methods have started to play an irreplaceable role.
