The talk will start from current teaching situation of most classrooms in universities. Two trends, i.e. mobile internet and widespread of high quality learning materials, will prompt responsible instructors to shift from teacher-centered educational notion, which has the property of trying to provide clearer expositive teaching, to student-centered one, which is characterized by intensify perception of students’ understanding. The tools to help the shift will then be discussed. The attractive Massive Open Online Course Principles of Electric Circuits has more than 200k students from 160 countries and regions; and the toolkit Rain Classroom own more than 5M users now. With these tools and appropriate instructional design, flipped classroom with large number of students can be realized with reasonable time costs of instructors and students. The key factors and feedback will be elaborated.
