The inorganic chemistry of elements is characterized by rich and descriptive contents. To improve the teaching effect, the blended learning is used to combine the advantages of traditional face-to-face teaching with digital learning. The enriched teaching resources are presented diversely and the important knowledge points are practiced in many ways. Meanwhile, the teaching contents, teaching methods and examination and valuation methods are improved. An active learning mode with students as the center and teacher guidance has been established. The preliminary practice shows that the blended learning mode is popular among students, has positive significance to enhance individualized teaching, and improves teaching effect and cultivate innovation ability.

Key words: Educational reform, Blended learning, Individualized teaching
