This paper aims at the implementation of the online courses of chemistry majors in Sichuan University in response to the epidemic, and explores a more effective and reasonable way to organize teaching. Based on the investigation and feedback of teachers and students, this paper points out the difficulties and challenges of online teaching at the present stage:the classroom interaction and discussion are not smooth, the online teaching tools and methods are diversified, and the chemistry laboratory courses are not matched. Therefore, the School of Chemistry of Sichuan University will coordinate the online teaching platform, enhance the classroom interaction, and launch the "chemistry virtual simulation experiment teaching center" to ensure the teaching progress and quality during the epidemic prevention and control.

Key words: Specialized courses in chemistry, Online teaching, COVID-19
