Under the COVID-19 epidemic, online teaching has become a common choice for schools and universities across China. Focusing on the online course of "Physical Chemistry" offered by the College of Chemistry of Central China Normal University, this article presents the preparation of teaching materials, the choice of teaching platforms, the evolution of the teaching process, and our reflection on online teaching. Our teaching practice over the first half of the semester has taken the advantage of the affordances of digital technologies and brought into full playing teachers' role in providing guidance and students' initiative in learning. An online course has been collaboratively constructed by the teachers and students. Based on a survey on the students, this article discusses the merits and demerits of online teaching and implications for future online teaching practice.

Key words: Online teaching, Physical chemistry, Practice, Thinking
