The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic is the defining global health crisis, and potential drugs have attracted widespread attentions. The authors attempted to use the known potential drugs as teaching cases throughout the whole teaching process of heterocyclic chemistry. Under the special pandemic situation, the authors also focused on exploring and utilizing the ideological and political education cases that were related to pandemic as well as potential drugs of COVID-19. The ultimate purpose was to strengthen the effects on both knowledge teaching and value guiding, and thus improve the curriculum system construction. The reform of heterocyclic chemistry classroom teaching via case methods could build a bridge between "theoretical knowledge-heterocyclic chemistry" and "real world-drug application", which effectively aroused students' enthusiasm as well as initiative for learning, and thus significantly improved the teaching effects.

Key words: Heterocyclic chemistry, Case teaching, Potential drug for COVID-19, Course ideology and politics
