Abstract—Flipped classroom is a kind of popular non-traditional teaching strategy emphasizing on individual learning which intentionally transfers instruction from a teacher-centered to a learner-centered model. The contribution of this paper is to propose a blended learning design based on the flipped classroom. In this paper, we take logistics system simulation, a core course for logistics engineering, as an example to design our blended learning based on flipped classroom. Our model of design has three phases, which are before class, in class and after class. For each of the phase five sections are illustrated, including students’ activities, teaching tasks, teacher’s activities, teaching methods and teaching tools. In application, we adopt one class of the course to conduct our empirical research in detail. The evaluation is considered the following three aspects: learning feedbacks of online video before class, recognition survey of our class design, and assignment completion scores of the students. Survey and questionnaire methods are used in gathering information. According to the statistics, our design is popular for students to learn. Most of the students consider our design of the class has a positive influence on their learning, and they prefer to the flipped classroom. The overall learning result of the students is well and the design has met our expectations. Our design can provide a good reference for study of flipped classroom teaching and can also provide ideas for the development of other courses.
