Design major students of Chinese universities and colleges exists a common learning concept on emphasizing the practice but contempt of theory. Students' interest in learning theoretical courses, especially design history courses is more diluted. In order to explorative change such phenomenon, researchers conducted a "History of Modern Design" course teaching of Sino-foreign cooperative education program as a pilot reform, drawing the current international hot network teaching resources and methods, innovatively constructing multivariate course online teaching platform, and combined with the flipped classroom teaching model which was vigorously advocated by the Chinese educational department. Empirical research and practice results show virtual course and online teaching and learning space. Application of flipped classroom teaching mode changed boring theory taught into exciting interactive teaching and learning. It not only trained independence of students' thinking, learning autonomy and the ability to explore knowledge, it also highly pushed students to innovatively apply design history theory. The course innovative reform achieved significant results. It was proved that can widely spread and apply in design history courses teaching of art and design majors of Chinese universities and colleges in the future.
