Computational chemistry laboratory is a laboratory course that uses molecular simulation as a tool to solve various core chemical problems through the synergy of "experiment, calculation and theory". In order to improve the teaching quality of computational chemistry laboratory course, the teaching reform of computational chemistry laboratory course are carried out against the backdrop of COVID-19 prevention. Based on the previous teaching papers of our course group and the teaching practice of our school, we have redesigned and integrated teaching resources, recorded micro-videos of laboratory lectures, designed the pre-class, in-class and after-class learning contents, and constructed an online course of computational chemistry laboratory using Chaoxing Learning Platform. The teaching practice has showed that the mixed mode is beneficial to the mode transformation from "teacher-oriented" to "student-oriented". It also can improve the students' ability to analyze and solve problems by using the principles and methods of structural chemistry, and cultivate students' sense of responsibility and mission to explore the unknown, pursue the truth, and climb the heights of science. Our teaching reform practices not only have good teaching effects, but also provide some references for the teaching reform in university.
