With the development of educational technology, micro-lecture and flipped classroom becomes a hot topic all over the world. Blended learning which combining the face to face teaching and online learning is becoming a trend in colleges and universities. Flipped classroom is based on micro-lecture. The paper introduces the background and significance of flipped classroom and blended learning; Taking Database Application course as an example, presents a kind of flipped classroom model based on micro-lecture, and gives the framework and process, as well as means of the manufacture of micro-lecture. The blended teaching mode is refreshing and has practical significance. Practice shows that the model can meet the needs of personalized learning, promote the quality of teaching.
