With the rapid development of information technology, the application of digital technology in the field of education has become increasingly widespread. This study takes the "Mechanical Principles" course as a background and explores the application of digital technology in the online and offline blended teaching of this course. The study aims to explore effective methods for improving student learning outcomes and teaching quality by establishing online teaching resource repository, digital teaching materials and online virtual laboratory, as well as establishing assessment and feedback mechanisms. It is hoped to provide in-depth theoretical support and practical experience for the application of digital technology in the "Mechanical Principles" course, and also serve as a valuable reference for the broader implementation of digital technology in mechanical engineering courses.
